Vista Points: (a) Near SO-3 (Flag Hill), walk a short distance towards Flag Hill Loop Trail to reach a rocky outgrowth. Views from atop these rocks are awesome! (b) At SO-28 (intersection of Vista Grande Road and Eagle View Trail), there is a bench. Panoramic views of hills and a lake in the distance are breathtaking! This is probably the best vista point in Sunol. (c) At SO-33 (intersection of Cave Rocks Road and Cerro Este Road), there is a bench that offers great views. (d) Near SO-42 (intersection of Cerro Este Road and Canyon View Trail), there is a short side trail going south. Views from a rocky outgrowth are awesome! Little Yosemite area is visible from here.
