Are you ready for a hiking tour to Mount Baldy CA? This incredible mountain hike is only a short drive from Los Angeles (if you want to make it even shorter, take the Interstate 210 to Highway 2). It is definitely one of our favorite hikes in Los Angeles County. Here’s why!
Mount Baldy is a mountain located in the San Gabriel Mountains, near the town of Mount Baldy, California. It sits at an elevation of 10,064 feet (3041m) and is the peak of this range. This mountain is also known as Mount San Antonio as its whole name. Hiking tours can be started from either Morris or Devil’s Backbone trailheads. Both of these are located at the end of Mt. Baldy Road which can be accessed from a number of locations such as Glendora, Azusa and Claremont in California.
As you sit on the patio of the restaurant, located in the Mt. Baldy Village, you see a sign pointing upwards to “Mount Baldy.” You look up and can see the mountain trail beginning. It’s a steep trail so it’ll take some stamina and endurance but there is a sign written with encouraging words on it that says: “Do not look down or else you will fall.” The rough path to Mt. Baldy reminds me of the importance of persistence and hard work to reach our dreams. It makes me think about how runners sometimes feel like they want to give up during a long marathon race.
