White Rock Hills Peak East to South (via Diamond Ridge) - 3/15/13
The day started out overcast but warm when ten hikers met at Albertson's to try out an alternative route to the summit of White Rock Hills. We parked at the Willow Springs picnic area and started hiking on the White Rock Hills Loop trail counter clockwise around the southeastern base of the mountain. We hiked about 0.6 miles on the trail and then went off-trail heading for the first or southern most canyon on the east side of the mountain. We started scrambling up this canyon until about halfway up when a particularly keen geocacher in the group took off to look for a nearby geocache.
