cool views. constantly climbing but not the worst.
Deceptively difficult, this is not a "moderate hike." If you follow the path outlined, you can go one of two ways, neither of which is easy.
Taking the south fork up, your path will be less steep to the summit of Big Baldy, but the way down will be very very steep. We had to go down backwards, nearly climbing, using our hands for support. The path down to the west from the summit is extremely steep, with loose dusty gravel and rocks. It's doable, but slow.
Going up the north fork will be an extremely steep ascent, but the descent will be a lot safer. However, that path is more in the shade, so will be cooler and get dark earlier.
In any case, this is one of the more difficult, frustrating hikes I've done, due to the long descent, loose rocky trail conditions, and steep grade coming down. Some awesome views all around, but not one I would do again soon.
good for camping
This hike needs to be considered as hard because it was a very difficult hike to climb, but for those who want to hike Dry Canyon need to pack A LOT of water especially if your bringing your dog because they need water as much as you do. As for little dogs if they're having a difficult time walking bring a backpack big enough to carry your dog. Keep your phones fully charged in case of emergency. Just be safe out there guys.
I love this trail because it takes you right under Mt. Timp and the views are amazing. It's a beautiful little canyon and the hike is medium difficulty for a day hike
Not as easy as I thought it would be but camping in Hidden Valley is incredible. It's amazing how it just turns into a flat, grassy valley in the midst of the mountain.
So... According to my iPhone's health app we went 9.29 miles by staying on this trail... I'm out of shape obviously. This took us more than 4 hours to complete. It is really steep for over a mile. This is definitely NOT EASY...
Beautiful views. Harder than Squaw Peak.
