Mount Baldy Ski Hut

The trail is one of the best in the San Gabriels. It starts on the road to beautiful San Antonio Falls and then moves onto a steep trail that takes you to the ski hut. This is a shortened version of my previous post to the top of Mount Baldy for people not willing or able to reach the top. In any case you will not be disappointed with this hike and it might inspire you to tackle the “beast” on another day.
