West Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Though not a long hike, the varied terrain, excellent vistas, and general lack of traffic make this one of the premier hikes in Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park. Summer in Caspers Park, particularly on the exposed ridges traversed on this hike, can be unpleasant and enervating. Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park consists of 8,000 acres that straddle Ortega Highway in the western foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains. Public access is permitted only in the northern part of the park. Here you will find many valleys and hills featuring coastal live oak, California sycamore, and coastal scrub sage. In the winter and spring, running streams and seasonal wildflowers add to the enjoyment."
