Ascent Trip Report

There are two parking spots and two seperate ways to reach the peak.

1. There is a large turnout at the base of the Mt. Baldy sign. Park here are follow the access road right to the top.
2. Just passed the turnout mentioned in option 1, is a second, smaller lot with a picnic table. Park here and look for a faint use trail. It splits within 100 feet of the table, but follow it uphill and make your way across open-ish terrain to the peak.

Im not sure if it was operator error but my GPS showed the peak being across the creek from where it is on the map. I'll re-check my GPS and then re-route the peak to get a better GPX. If only to get a little bit of a warm up for a bigger peak.
