This hike is a good introduction to the more challenging peaks in the Mount Baldy area. Go up Mount Baldy Road, then make a hairpin left at Glendora Ridge Road. Make sure you do not park in the upper lot – the one with signs saying “no parking”. Park along the road as shown here.
The trailhead is not hard to find:
Take the fire road all the way up. Make a sharp right at the 2.5 mile point:
Keep right along the fire road at 3.2 miles, unless you feel very energetic and want to take the steep hiking trail.
You will be at the peak soon
