A genuine ridge walk, with lots of short-and-steep up and downs, and sweeping views on all sides across the north-west corner of the San Gabriels.
Short, sweet, and quickly accessible from Pasadena.
The longer, steeper, less-frequented way up Baldy.
Disappointing slog round the east side of Mount Wilson.
A deserted trail through a secluded valley, with open tracks at either end.
5-mile track loop with Altadena views.
Rugged summit and ridge route with Mojave views, plus valley walking with streams for the second half.
A gentle 9-mile there-and-back ramble along the PCT with northerly views.
Glorious long PCT ridge route through the High Country to “North Baldy”, the range’s second highest peak.
