Start at the wooden sign that says "Baden-Powell Trail - 4 Miles". The route is easy to follow, thanks to the signs along the way. You are going to navigate 41 switchbacks on your way to the summit. These are the most switchbacks of any trail in the San Gabriels. You will have gained 2,800 feet by the time you reach the top.

Essential Gear

Be sure to bring enough water.
