Join me for a hike on the Dixie Mountain Loop! We'll take the trail counter-clockwise and enjoy the beautiful desert scenery. There is some climbing to reach the Dixie summit and Western Vista summit via spur trails. We'll stop at each one to enjoy the views before continuing along our way. You're encouraged to bring snacks, a camera, and must bring at least 2+ liters of water per person and sturdy hiking footwear.
