    Hi, does this one start at Winter Creek Trail, then going clockwise ended up at the gate near the parking lot? Or the other way around?

    Also, I been to this area many times, by 7:30AM, all the parking lot is going to be full on the weekends, I recommend that the group stops at Arcadia REI to consolidate cars.

    Yea that's in chantry off the 210 at Santa anita go north past the gate the road dead ends at chantry parking lot. FYI if you aren't planning on leaving oc till 730 and at around an hour or so to get to chantry, you are going to find the parking lot full most likely I've been there at 7 the last 4 weekends and its almost full by then. If you get there after 730 or 8 if u are lucky you will probably have to park down the hill a bit and walk a bit to the trailhead.
