“A trail located to the west of the Vista Loop and accessed via the Main Loop Trail.”— Alfred Martinez
RW is approximately 3.0 miles end to end with ascents and descents though hilly, scrubby woodlands and grassy areas. Juniper, Crepe Myrtle, Live Oak, Hackberry, Persimmon, Cedar Elm, and Red bud trees shade hikers throughout route.
The north end of trail is at the base of the Cielo Vista neighborhood. Large boulders and rocks will have to be overcome at different locations throughout path. At the 0.3-mi mark, the Mill Pass Trail cuts across this loop shortening the distance of RWQ. The Mill Pass Trail has a windmill near its mid-point.
