Hilltop and Meadow Edge are short connector trails that offer alternatives to walking on Genesee Ridge Road and Shooting Star Drive. These two trails are part of the Vista Loop, which can be hiked in either direction from the Vista Clubhouse. You can also combine these two trails with Deer Run Spur and Deer Run Loop for an out-and-back hike from Vista Clubhouse. This option is less than two miles long and, at over 7700’ elevation, offers some of the best views in Genesee. These trails are also good choices for snowshoeing during the winter months.

Safety Reminder:

Remember to leash and clean up after your dogs. There are pet waste receptacles at both ends of Shooting Star Drive.
