Trail shared by Miguel Vieira

This notoriously hilly trail takes you awesome views on Chalk Mountain.

Description

This trail technically begins at the top of a ridge above Waddell Creek, but the only access is from the Clark Connector Trail. From the Clark Connector Trail, the Westridge Trail heads north, descending for a bit, but then climbing steeply.

The trail then descends and stays relatively level for a stretch through the redwoods. The trail finally climbs once more through chaparral to the top of Chalk Mountain, where you'll get some excellent views. The trail ends at the intersection with Chalks Road.

Doesn't have as much shade as you'd think. Not recommended for when it's warm.
