Santa Cruz County High Point Trip Report

Mt McPherson

Parking along the road is prohibited so I parked about 0.75 miles north at Castle Rock State Park ($2 fee - or possibly park in some unposted areas near entrance for free). Tried to find trail in woods to the Bielawski Lookout Tower but only found a service road that fed me back out to the highway, but just a few steps from the short road to the lookout tower. Easy walk up. Christmas tree lot was open but no one was around. Quick stroll to flat highpoint area and some stepping around. Walked back to my car via the highway.
