From the Park HQ, took the Sunset trail to Berry Creek, then followed an old trail (no longer maintained but it was easy to follow) up to Whitehouse Road which leads to the summit. Distance was a bit over 15 miles RT, with 4500 ft of elevation gain, there are a lot of ups and downs on this route. TR is HERE.
Funny! It was so foggy here in Santa Cruz yesterday, I was thinking it was a good thing we did the hike on Saturday. Did the fog burn off enough for you to get any views?
You know, everything I could I read about this hike says the trail is very lightly used. But there were two other parties on the day we hiked up there. Anyway, now I want to set up a shuttle for a Whitehouse Ridge Trail-Chalk Mountain-Westridge Trail Hike.
