My previous hike to Baden Powell followed the Pacific Crest Trail straight up from Vincent Saddle. Actually it was far from straight up, involving many switchbacks. This time, I figured i would hike from Dawson Saddle, past Throop Peak, an along a ridge to Baden Powell. This hike was a bity longer (9.36 miles vs. 9.0 miles) but required much less elevation gain (2,349 ft vs. 3123 ft).
The trailhead and parking are the same as for Throop Peak:
There is one “gotcha” on the way up- be sure to take a sharp right at about 0.3 miles up. If you keep going on the same trail you will end back on Angeles crest Highway:
No other pictures or notes I’m afraid.
Here is the summit:
I wish I had taken more pictures on the way up, but I was very focused on making the summit. Mount Burnham is not a SOTA peak but does count for Sierra Club 100 Peaks.
