Strenuous but relaxed pace, 7.8 mi R/T, 2,800 ft gain hike on a cool, shaded, forested North facing slope to Mt. Baden Powell (9,400')

A great lookout with panoramic SoCal and desert views and up close views of Mt. Baldy.

We will enjoy a long lunch break at the peak and take in the scenery.

Great intro to altitude hike, but good physical condition required.

One section on a ridge with steep dropoffs.

Bring lunch, hat, suncreen, min 3qts water, boots, ten essentials, and $$ for optional dinner.

Meet at 9:00AM at North OC Carpool Point, return 7:00pm. Leader: Charles G. Geller ([masked]). Coleader: Angela Boyd ([masked])

    Is the Baden Powell trail anywhere near Table Mountain, Broken Blade, Twisted Arrow, or Pima Loops campgrounds? Did you read the news?

      Barry, you asked for carpool, but unfortunately I'm going to get CA-55N which is far from Costa Mesa.
