This hike is one of the premiere hikes in AZ and if you have not been to this area you are missing out on one of the most beautiful areas in the White Mountains.

For this year’s hike we will be doing a loop hike. We will start off on the East Baldy trail (#95) and then exit to one of the unmarked older 'trails' that leads to the summit of Baldy. We will be camping along this trail Friday night.
On Saturday we will summit and head back down the mountain on the West Baldy Trail (#94) to the Little Colorado River and camp out in the tree islands.
Sunday we will continue down the trail to trail #96 (Crosscut Trail) back to our vehicles. This hike has many different options, so if this itinerary doesn’t fit you, call me and we can discuss your options. Also be reminded this time of year is the rainy season, so be prepared.
