From Madera Canyon via Super Trail to Josephine Saddle then Old Baldy Trail to Old Baldy saddle. Windy there. Then switchbacks to the summit. Lots of other hikers.

Date Climbed: Feb 20, 2017


I left at 3:00 AM to beat the crowds and to take advantage of hardpack snow from a recent storm. Some snow on the side of the trail starting at 6000', but then constant snow from 7000' (Josephine Saddle) and above. Boot tracks the entire way, and I just could walk in them. It was much colder than predicted or anticipated, and I made the mistake of not taking gloves, and my hands were the coldest that they had ever been. I did not waste any time on the mountain as a result, and I had trouble gripping my trekking poles. I had to get creative with methods of warming my hands. I was back down to the car by 9:30 AM, which was when other people were just starting to hike the trails.

By far the best hike and peak on my 8 day trip to Arizona. Hiked via the Old Baldy Trail and summited Mount Ian along the way. Beautiful day and all around awesome hike.

Fantastic hike up Old Baldy Trail. Began at 6:AM to little traffic and summited around 10:AM. Strenuous, with many switchbacks, but worth the effort for the views of Tucson and surrounding towns. Highly recommended.

It was a perfect weekend weather wise but Madera Canyon was packed with people picnicing so I had to park a mile further down; surprisingly few people on the trail. Great views!

Hiked up the Super Trail down the Old Baldy Trail, forming a "figure 8" and enjoyed 360 degree views from the mountain. It was a sunny and calm day with ideal temperatures. I will return.

Thanks to the people who put in a boot pack! The road was closed for construction a mile or so from the trailhead, but I biked through with no trouble. Nice views of Baboquivari and Madera alluvial fan from the summit. With the softening snow, the run down was epic! Trip report.

Good trail. Nice afternoon hike after driving up mt Lemmon in the morning. This peak was more interesting than the four ultras in southern arizona. This appears to be a very popular hike based on the number of register entries.

Climbed this twice back in the 90's and this would now be my 3rd summit.

Hit the snowline about a mile from the Baldy saddle- and the final ascent to the summit was quite icy and reasonably dangerous.

Pics and commentary are here.

Great day hike with my wife. Via Old Baldy trail.
Plenty of sun and heat, but a nice breeze throughout the day.
Secret to my success... carrying my own shade.
My third trip to the summit. My wife's first trip, unfortunately she had knee pain the whole way down. She is amazing.

Climbed in Fall 2008, I believe. Saw a bear on the way, and tons of bugs at the top.

Great hike! Great trail- amazing trail work! A warm December day and nice climbing conditions. Didn't have our trekking poles but my wife & I had no problems- the switch backing makes this 4,000 + ft vertical rise relatively moderate on both the ascent & descent. In fact, we passed 9 hikers & probably four were in their 70s!
