Sunset Peak the Long Way Hike 8 mi. 1400 G/L

  • Sunset Peak

    Glendora Ridge Road, Mt Baldy, CA (map)

    34.219090 -117.712585

  • Take Mt Baldy Road to Glendora Ridge Road and go 4 miles to the parking area that will be on your left.
  • PLEASE NOTE this trailhead is 4.2 miles from Mt. Baldy Road on Glendora Ridge Road. Please check the map.

    Come join us on a fun and scenic 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.

    The Basics:

    - Distance: About 8.1 miles
    - Elevation Gain: About 1400 feet
    - Time: A little over 3 hours
    - 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.

    The Notables:
    - Relatively easy fire road trail
    - Excellent views of the Baldy Bowl, San Antonio Canyon, and Rancho Cucamonga.
    - Remains of a fire tower at the summit.

    Bring:  Water and something to snack.

    It was a lovely hike and despite Ruth getting a bit lost with my kids, we all had a great time up and back.

    Decided to brave the winds & hit the trail anyway. It was a spectacular day on the trail! Didn't start until after 10 & there was just a pleasant breeze.
    Ran into a few peeps that didn't get the memo early this morn, they were headed down as my pupster & I were headed up.
    Glad I went anyway =)

    So, for the four people that didn't look at their meeting after 5:38 this morning, we went ahead and did the hike and it was fine.

    Hey Gang. I live at the base of the mountains and the winds are blowing gale force out here. With the high winds and fire danger I think it prudent to cancel this hike. Some of you may want to still attempt, that's fine. Glendora Ridge Road may also be closed due to the fire danger. Sorry for the late notice.
