You can start this trail at Bog Springs Campground, Madera Picnic Area, or the Madera Ampitheatre. Around 1 mile in, the trail splits in two directions; one takes you past Bog Springs, the other past Sylvester Spring. Both paths are equidistant and meet up at Kent Springs after 2 miles. Around 2 miles later you will arrive at Amour Spring, then another half mile brings you to the junction with Crest Trail. This junction marks the end of Four Springs Trail.
12/29 - LOTS of snow on most of Old Baldy trail from 7500' to the summit. It varies from 1" to 10-12" around the switchback turns, and was very wet underneath. We had on low top hiking boots and our feet were soaked and cold for most of the trip.
This is one omg my favorites!!! Challenging at times but huge payoff in the end. There was about 1" of snow and quite a bit ice after baldy saddle but taking it slow will get the job done. Love the views and I highly recommend the hike. Be sure to plan a full day to take it all in.
This trail was great. Challenging but worth it for the great views. My 10 year old son was able to handle going to the peak and back down. He was pretty exhausted afterwards but was glad he did it.
Did the Super Trail round trip. There is a fork about half way up, there is a tribute to the lost boy scouts, stay right to stay on Super. It is longer than Old Baldy but I enjoyed it, much better views. YmThe hike was amazing. It had rained recently so all the creeks and waterfalls were running pretty good. There is a lot of vegetation growing over the trails so wear pants. I took 4 liters of water, drank 3. The hike is long but worth it. Highly recommended.
awesome hike. I can't wait to try it again and make it all the way!
what an awesome and hard trail. I took the long route there approximately 14 miles and took me 7 hrs. what an awesome hike and view, come prepared bring plenty of water and snacks.
Great views, greenery and wildlife
I hiked Super Trail to Josephine Saddle and then Baldy trail to Old Baldy Trail And 1 mi more to peak . Did it in March with a little snow starting before the Baldy Saddle.. Great workout I loved the hike. I rate it 5 stars
We did this trail on Thanksgiving day for the first time and I must say, it was an excellent workout. we took the old baldy up and out. it took us 8 hours. We are in our late 60s and thoroughly enjoyed the hike. It wasn't too difficult except it was very windy when we got to the top and since we were moving, ee didn't mind the 30s degree weather. We definitely will do Wrightson again when the heat begins in tucson.
