Ascent Trip Report

The trail up to the ridge from Copper Park is steep. There is only a faint trail that leads along the ridge to Baldy, and then it is an easy scramble up loose shale to the top. Thunderheads form early on Baldy, usually by 11:00am most days, so it is advisable to be heading down by then.
