Saturday August 13- Hike to Mt Baldy. At 10,068 ft, Mount San Antonio or Mt Baldy is the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mtns. Due to both the elevation and the steepness of the trail, this is a Difficult and very Strenuous hike – not for Beginning hikers. We will do an 11 mile loop, hiking up via the trail to the Ski Hut and on to the summit. We will return via the Devil’s Backbone trail to the Ski Lodge and back down to the parking area. Bring plenty of water, lunch, snacks, poles and good hiking boots. Meet at the trailhead: From I-210 in Upland, take the Mountain Avenue/Mount Baldy exit and drive north on Mountain Avenue to the intersection with Shinn Road - veer left onto Shinn. Continue on for 4.3 miles. At a T junction with Mount Baldy Road, turn right and drive 9.0 miles to San Antonio Falls Road on the left, 0.3 mile past Manker Flats Campground. Park in dirt pull outs along the divided road next to San Antonio Falls road (a dirt road) with pit toilets which is the trailhead. Appx 1/2 mile further up the road is the Baldy Ski Lifts – if you go there, you have gone too far. The Angeles National Forest Adventure Pass is required for your vehicle while parked at the trailhead. Meet at the trailhead at 8AM. Leader: Nikki
