Our Trail

Let's face it, when it comes to weather no place beats Vista. And what better way to enjoy that climate and the natural beauty of North San Diego County, than to get outside and take a hike!


The Vista Conservancy's trail is just the place to start. Working alongside the City of Vista, the Vista Conservancy has worked to continue to expand the trail.  The Conservancy Trail starts at the backside of Wildwood Park at the Adobe. (Rancho Buena Vista Adobe nearby) (or enter at 751 E. Vista Way, Vista).  After passing over the bridge, enter through a gate on your left and wander along the stream. When you reach the eastern end of the open space, take some time to investigate the newly dedicated Native American grinding stones. As you continue east, you'll enjoy the trail in its natural setting as it meanders along the stream bed under a canopy of native oaks.


The trail, at this point, crosses Vale Terrace Drive and after a short path enters Brengle Terrace Park (home of the Vista Moonlight Amphitheater!) For those who have not been by the park recently, you may not have noticed all the changes to the creek area. The City has presented plans for creek restoration and a continuing of the trail to the eastern end of the park.  A new trial will be set in place along the creek.  At the crest of the hill stop in and enjoy the Alta Vista Gardens!


Many envision a connection of this trail to the creek walk in the Vista Village, thereby creating miles of trails in the heart of our great city! Join us in making this vision a reality!
