From Manker Flat  Sucess!

Drove down from the Bay Area for a conference in Palm Springs - after visiting the downtown LA library I drove up to Manker Flat and hiked up to the ski lodge and took the Devil's Backbone trail up to Baldy with a side visit to West Baldy and Harwood on a fine afternoon. Barely any snow to be found anywhere, and none on the trail. Trip report is HERE.

Fun and Fast  Sucess!

3rd time up, but the first time not taking the Devil's Backbone. Althougth a bit steeper, it is definately more scenic.

Great Nite Hike  Sucess!

SEEING TRAILS HIKE GANG full-moon-lunar-eclipse night hike. Went up via Baldy Bowl trail, reached the summit, traversed the Devil's Backbone and came down the Baldy Notch trail. Very windy and exposed on the summit. Lots of fun.

What a great LA mountain  Sucess!

What a great mountain so close to one of the largest cities in the world!

Night Hike  Sucess!

Started hiking at 9pm to break in new mountaineering shoes and train for another hike. Brought up the jet boil and made hot chocolate at the top and saw all the city lights and stars above. Awesome experience.

Great one  Sucess!

Done it a half dozen times or so in the past few years, via Ski Hut, Devil's Backbone and Bear Canyon. The last one is my favorite since there are so few people on it.

went clockwise  Sucess!

Went up the steep part, then down the Devil's backbone and rode the chairlift down. A great view and not too far from LA.

20 mile loop  Sucess!

Did a 20 mile loop up Bear Canyon, down the Devil's Backbone, over the 3 T's trail, out Ice House Canyon and then hike a couple miles down Baldy Road to get back to the car. Very foggy out but a fun trip!

2nd Trip   Sucess!

Good Trip. Went up Ski Hut Trail and Down Devils Back Bone. Weather was so so, very windy above the tree line.

Awesome Views  Sucess!

Used the ski lift to start and the access road to get back down. I wanted to go down the Baldy Bowl route but my wife's knee was bothering her. Gorgeous views and was not very crowded at the summit, or along the trail. Watch your step as the trail gets pretty narrow in places.

Bear Canyon trail via the South Ridge  Sucess!

13 miles and 6000 ft of elevation gain, awesome and aggressive hike. Exhausting and exhilarating, but with great satisfaction at the end of the day. Beautiful weather, from the high 50's in the morning, to the mid 80's in the late afternoon. No convection at the top, just blue sky. Looking south, above the marine layer you could see Catalina. Be in shape to do this hike. Walk on....
