+Chuy! Posted January 18, 2007 Share Posted January 18, 2007 My-oh-my. It looks like the west side of McGinty is the happening spot these days. Do I need to go out there a third week in a row? What's a good starting spot if one is think of going out to this area? It depends on which caches you need. We hiked up McGinty from the south side (see previous posting for coords) and then hiked out the west side. There is less elevation gain going that direction. As TG said it depends on the caches you need, but if you're planning on staying on the west side, you can start at Chuy!'s cache GC10BWX. That's both a good starting point and a place to park. Parking on the east side is at the end of Wild West (you gotta walk up a private driveway about 75 feet - all the locals do it, and I waved to homeowner once and he waved back.) Or, park at end of Hidden Ridge Rd. Wild West cuts about .5 miles and about 150 feet of elevation gain. Hike to the top is very steep but about a mile shorter than the west side. If you're going to do all the caches like CTYankee just did, start on the west side. Otherwise, break it in half and do the peak (all the way to at least TRviolin's M'm! M'm! Good Sycuan View cache) from the east side. Quote Link to comment
