Baldy Bowl Trail (aka Ski Hut Trail)

Class 1


  • Mount San Antonio, also known as Mount Baldy, is the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains, and the highest point in Los Angeles County.
  • Mount San Antonio's sometimes snow-capped peaks are visible on clear days and dominate the view of the Los Angeles skyline.
  • Also called Mount Baldy because of, as you can guess, its bald, treeless summit.
  • Currently home to the Mount Baldy Ski Lifts, the closest ski resort to Los Angeles.
  • Hiking trails access the summit from 3 sides of the mountain. The "Baldy Bowl" is popular with mountaineers; sections of the Bowl are steep with slopes of 45° to 50°.
