Episode 62 The Mt. Baldy Ski Hut Trail

August 11, 2010


Eric's Five Finger Shoes at the summit of Mt. Baldy

This episode is about a day hike up to the summit of Mt. Baldy, the highest point in Los Angeles County California. We hike up the Sierra Club Ski Hut Trail, an intense 4,000 foot gain over four miles.  Along the way we pass the beautiful San Antonio Falls and work our way up to the Ski Hut built in the 1930’s by early ski mountaineers and maintained by volunteers today.

We also pass the crash site of two World War II fighter planes and a spiritual location on the way to the narrow section of trail know as the Devil’s Backbone.

Come along with Katie, Eric, John, Gerry and I as we experience, The Sierra  Club Ski Hut Trail to the top of Mt. Baldy

  1. wow you ascend via ski hut? that’s pretty intense. I’ve done Baldy twice and i’ve always used the devil’s backdone as a ascend and come down via ski hut. I need to try this because Devil’s backbone is really a cool skinny trail but ski hut is much more scenic.
