Fence Line/Twister Trails

Mother's Vista - Fenceline & Twister trails come together here. There is a granite plaque on the pillar as memorial to "mom". A sweet and touching rememberance.

Comments: A beautiful day for hiking! Apparently the cyclists and deer had the same idea ... I saw several while on the fenceline trail. The fence line trail begins as an old ranch road but quickly turns into a deeply rutted path. Some of the ruts are up to two feet deep! This trail winds through a dry creek bed before connecting with Twister Trail at "Mother's Vista", a granite plaque with a bench on private property placed by her children ... a sweet and touching memorial. Twister Trail forks to the left and is so far the best-marked trail I've found in the park. This was a fun trail to hike with alot of terrain variety. It also appeared to be one not often traveled. One cool feature was the mixture of "fossilized shells" & rocks ... a great "discovery" for the young archeologist!
