Started at Manker Flat, went up Register Ridge to Baldy, then down the North backbone To Dawson. I missed the trail down Baldy when I was off in some snow and ice, but found it easily on the way back, then returned via Baldy Bowl. I was hoping to also do Pine Mountain, but a late start in the day nixed that.

Cleaning up the higher HPS peaks north of Baldy. Dawson was #2 after coming up over Pine from Blue Ridge. Great views of Baldy's north face and the desert, also out to the San Bernardino. Reversed route back down to Blue Ridge and finished with Wright.

Success this time! Beautiful hike from Blue Ridge. Really enjoyed the part from Pine/Dawson saddle to summit. Tacked on Circle Mtn before this traverse hike. Note the Dawson Peak Trail junction (Fish Creek Trail on sign) and noted the trail was overgrown at the top too. No surprise there...

I was originally wanting to go from Baldy to Dawson to Pine and back, but time and energy was low. Bagged Dawson then headed back up the steep ascent to Baldy's summit.

Not very exciting, but if you're already on your way to Baldy from Pine, might as well bag it.

Probably the least remarkable of the three peaks on this trail, but the relatively tame ascent from the Pine/Dawson saddle was very much appreciated by my feet/knees/legs.

Okay, I'll be the humble schmuck to say I didn't make it... What started as an ambitious 5-peak, 5,000' 16 mile loop fell short due to daylight and what was nearly endless thrashing.

Started at Guffy, dropped to Camp Lupine, up Fish Creek Trail to Pine Mtn Ridge over to Wild View Peak via a slide-covered section of the trail and from there is where it got interesting. Picked up the use trail dropping down to the "Spring" due east of Wild View to pick up Dawson Peak Trail (I use that term losely). Trail was well-defined until I crossed the second spring (both drinkable) and that's when the fun started. What ensued was over 2 hours of thrashing through overgrown trail/slopes and navigational challenges just to climb 1400'. Brush thinned out at about 8100' on west slope of Pine Mtn so I climbed the ridge proper. Topped out at 9400' on Pine Mtn, traversed over nasty rock to trail and back to road due to time. Figured why tag any of the peaks since I need to go back and get Dawson.

Moral to the story...Dawson Peak Trail is not much of a trail anymore. Still enjoyed the day though.

Camped on the blue ridge the night before . . . got an early start with JQ. Hiked most of the way to Baldy with a nice dude we met along the way and his dog (mohawk).

Climbed it on the way to Baldy, but was happy that the trail does not go through the summit on the way back.

Easy traverse from Pine Mountain. Probably my favorite part of the day with great views of the North side of Baldy. Nice relaxing walk after the climb up the north ridge of Pine Mt. Didn't see anybody all day.

The "easier" of the three of Pine, Dawson, and Baldy when coming from Blue Ridge Road. Short, easy, traverse from the trail to the top.
