White Rock Loop Trail - Counter-Clockwise

Presented here are photos taken while hiking the White Rock Loop from Willow Springs east to White Rock Trailhead and then on around the loop, which is "backwards" relative to the complete route description.

For hikers who can arrange a shuttle, hiking between Willow Springs Trailhead and White Rock Trailhead can be a nice when two vehicles are driven to White Rock Trailhead. One is left there, and hikers continue in the other vehicle to Willow Springs Trailhead. Hikers then walk back to pick up the first vehicle.
