North/South Vista hike

Enjoy the fall vistas in the Penokee Range on a guided hike to the North/South Vista with naturalists John Bates and Mary Burns. 

The Penokee Range in Iron County offers some marvelous vistas from which to view fall colors. The “North-South Vista” is one of those, a rock bald that provides long views down upon a forested landscape. The trail to the vista is all uphill and often muddy, but your effort will be rewarded!
Directions: We will meet at 10 a.m. on Saturday, 9/30, just before the corner of Weber Lake Rd. and County E - please park your car on County E along the side of the road as best you can. We will hike up the ATV/snowmobile trail to a side trail that takes us to the North/South Vista. The ATV trail is a dirt road that is occasionally muddy but otherwise in good shape. The side trail, however, has been severely rutted by ATVs and is extremely muddy but passable along the edges. The hike is 45 minutes one way and concludes with a gorgeous view to the south, east, and west - the northern view is now blocked by tree growth. This is a strenuous uphill hike and requires good balance to get around the muddy ruts, but it’s well worth it!
