Please note that this is the trial head closest to Mt. Baldy Road, not the one 4 miles down Glendora Ridge Road we use for the long way. Check the map please. Contact me with any questions.
Sunset Peak is a popular summit south of Baldy and Lookout Mountain. For people in reasonably good shape, virtually no wilderness experience is required, as the summit can be reached by a well-graded fire road (a total distance of 3.5 miles for a round trip of 7)
Location: Angeles National Forest south of Mt. Baldy. From the 210 Freeway, take the Baseline Road exit and go west for 0.7 miles. Take a right (north) onto Mills, go 1.1 miles and bear right onto Mt. Baldy Road. Go 8 miles and take a hard left on Glendora Ridge Road (right before Mt. Baldy Village) and drive a mile to Cow Canyon Saddle and park at the side of the road.
Bring your 10 essentials including a flashlight. Well behaved Dogs are welcome.
