Access issues have closed the trailhead off Rancho Vistoso Blvd. Do NOT use the powerline/WAPA road to access this area any more until the access issues are resolved. You have a couple of options to ride these trails. You can still drive or ride up Edwin Road from near Saddlebrook on Oracle Road where the Rail X Ranch sign is. Or you can park at the old juvenile justice facility just south of MP 85 on Oracle Road and north of the wildlife bridge. Parking area is on the east side. From there, ride north, cross at the light on Wilds Road and ride up the highway to the entrance to the Vista de la Montana United Methodist Church. Ride down the paved road and look for the obvious two-track near the telephone poles for the trail., New directional signs should be in place. Or you can also park at the big shopping center at Golder Ranch Road, cross at the light there and ride south on Oracle Road to the church entryway. DO NOT PARK ON THE CHURCH ROAD. We have access to state lands thanks to the church, but will lose that privilege if we don't abide by their wishes--no parking on their land, do not litter or defecate, do not ask to use the bathrooms at the church or fill your water bottles, and be courteous.
