Here are the details for this Saturday
We will break off into 2 teams. Joo and Jenny will be leading TEAM HELLO KITTY (THK) for all the beginner hikers. And for the more advanced hikers, and for those without a clue yet, I'll be leading TEAM POWER RANGERS (TPR).
Breakfast ends at 11 AM on Saturday. So I want both teams to meet up no later than 10:15 AM at the Top of the Notch restaurant.
Team Power Rangers will start the hike at exactly 6 AM. For most of us, that means waking up early and making sure we have plenty of time to drive there and find parking. Don't be late! We can't wait and won't wait because we need to meet up with Team Hello Kitty by 10:15 AM. If you feel like 4 hours is way too much time for this hike, and rather sleep in longer, feel free to speak up. I'm just trying to give us more than enough time to hike one mile uphill per hour with some rest time in between. But just be aware that we will take the most serious trail up the summit on the Ski Hut Trail from Manker Flats. We will start approximately 6,000 ft. and gain 3,900 vertical feet in the next 4.2 miles. This calculates to an impressive 928 ft of elevation gain per mile. To put this in perspective, when you hike Mt. Whitney, while you go much farther and higher, your elevation gain is only 563 ft per mile. In other words, this is a very strenuous hike, and almost all uphill!
Directions for Team Power Rangers
To get to the trailhead: Take the 210 east to Baseline Road (exit 52). Turn left at the light at the end of the ramp on to Baseline Road. Make the next right on to Padua Avenue. Drive 1.7 miles and turn right onto Mount Baldy Road (there will be a traffic light). Continue 7 miles up Mount Baldy Road through Mount Baldy Village (where there is a visitor center) and follow the road for another 4.4 miles up the mountain past Manker Flats Campground to the bottom of Falls Road on the left. Park along Mount Baldy Road, display an adventure pass, and begin hiking up Falls Road.
Trailhead address: Mount Baldy Road & Falls Road, Angeles National Forest, Mount Baldy, CA 91759

As for Team Hello Kitty, you'll be taking the ski lifts to the summit and meeting Team Power Rangers at the Top of the Notch restaurant for breakfast buffet at 10:15 AM. I imagine you'll want to gather at the base of the chair lifts to space out enough time (2 hours) to rendevous with Team Power Rangers at the appointed time. But I'll leave fine prints to both Joo and Jenny.
After our delicious breakfast buffet, we have the following options. Some of us can look around, take some photos, and do some short hikes around the summit. Some of us may decide to hike back down the entire way. Well, for me, I'll be taking the chair lift option to get back. The steep trail back down will be brutal on your knees and that's no good for the snowboarding season! But we can discuss all the options in detail over breakfast!
