Ascent Trip Report

This is a worthwhile peak with expansive views from the summit. However, it is very popular and parking may be a challenge on weekends. I took the shorter Old Baldy Trail up and the longer Super Trail down. The Super Trail does have a shallower grade, but higher up it receives less traffic and has a rougher tread. So, I would recommend the Old Baldy Trail. It also has the advantage of saying on the west side of the peak, so it is better shaded from the morning sun.
