So Cal Peak Hike #2 was Mount San Antonio, better known as Mt. Baldy. Hard to believe there is a 10,000 ft. peak just an hour outside of Los Angeles. What a treasure!
I convinced some friends to hike the 6.4 miles with an elevation gain of over 3,000 ft. (We took the ski lift up and down to cut the full 10-11 mile hike in half.) It took us over 5 hours to hike the 6.4 miles, and we were VERY grateful to see that ski lift at the end of a long day!
The hike was strenuous, steep, and long. But the views were incredible. We hiked the “Devil’s Backbone” trail which is about a 4-foot path along the ridges of the mountain range. Can’t beat the views from the top!
The summit at 10,064 ft!
We hiked it!
