Come join us on a fun and scenic conditioning hike to Sunset Peak. A winding fire-road hike to one of the front peaks near the Mt. Baldy Area. This is the longer but less strenuous of two routes, and offers outstanding, panoramic views of the Baldy Bowl and – on clear days – the seemingly never-ending sprawl of Rancho Cucamonga. At the peak itself are the remains of an old fire tower that burned down years ago.
- Distance: About 7.8 miles
- Elevation Gain: About 1300 feet
- Time: A little over 3 hours — probably less time if there’s no snow or ice on the trail.
- Trail Condition: Very good. It’s fire road almost all of the way, so it’s wide and relatively level. Junctions aren’t marked, but just keep going up and you should be fine.
- How To Get There: Take the 210 to the Mount Baldy exit. Continue north toward Mount Baldy Village, then turn left onto Glendora Ridge Road. Drive about 4.2 miles to a turnoff on the left hand side of the road. Park here, display your Adventure Pass, and start your hike on the Fire Road.
