We started the hike at 6:45am on a Saturday and finished at 10. We probably should have started earlier only because the parking lot was already full and by the time we started descending, there were way too many people going up the trail, which was sort of annoying. It was a fun hike though! Pretty difficult as it was very rocky and the incline was unrelenting. But it was doable and we enjoyed it.

Went in a group of 7 women and completed the trail. Myself and another went onto timber mountain from saddle (another .9 miles). Bring lots of water and bug spray. Hiking poles are optional but are always helpful. I brought hiking poles but didn't really use them. I only used them when we went onto timber mountain due to steep inclines. The trail can also be completed alone if you're a moderate to avid hiker. I will definitely be going back and head to the other peaks. FYI: we hiked on a week day so parking was available. However the spacing is limited so if you're coming on a weekend come very early. Adventure pass is required.

Awesome hike; started at 7:30 AM and was at the summit about 11:10 AM. Then hike to the ski lift and down to parking. About 11 miles total. Unreal vistas and lots of fellow hikers, which I like to see. I would recommend for sure. Make sure you prepare a little and bring some Gu Energy Gel. You'll need it as you approach the summit.

This trail will kick your butt! Be careful on the ridges as they can get very narrow slippery. Bring LOTS of water.

Cool little fern gully otw up to Baldy via the Old Mount Baldy trail. Very pretty and lots of shade until this point. Looked like there were some camping spots too. The trail to get up to Lookout Mt. is also right off of the flats.

Clockwise up Ski Hut trail to summit in just over three hours. Lots of awesome pictures. Look for the 1950's plane wreckage to the west about 3/4's way up. Very few hikers at summit on Tuesday morning. Down Devil's BB to the Notch for a Snickers, then back to Manker. Hooked up with "Jerry" at ski hut and hiked to summit with him. Amazing trail that needs to be enjoyed instead of just completed.

Beware: the directional point used on this trail description doesn't take you to the parking for the trail, but generally nearest to icehouse canyon trailhead, which is NOT where you want to begin for this hike. Also there's no service once you get in this area so plan ahead and note clearly that where you want to start is the parking near San Antonio Falls.

Not sure what to give this review. I give 5-stars for the workout but there are serious issues that would prevent me from doing this trail again. After timber mountain the trail was extremely dangerous. It was only about a foot wide for long stretches forcing me to go much slower than normal, and stopping was also dangerous as it was very steep and extremely windy in areas. The main problem I had was that at one point during the trail, I absolutely could not find the extension to the other part of the trail. I ended up going longer than the trail extended and found myself on the edge of the mountains in slippery terrain. It was not fun. I had to backtrack several times, and actually what saved me was the gps I had downloaded from this site. It helped me get back on track and keep going.

YOU NEED TO BE IN SHAPE FOR THIS ONE ... AND PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A LOT OF WIND AT THE TOP. MAKE SURE TO WEAR SUNSCREEN AND A LARGE HAT, MOST OF THE TRAIL IS EXPOSED TO THE SUN. WENT JULY 17, 2016 -- WAS COMFORTABLE IN PATAGONIA ROCK PANTS AND A TSHIRT.

Kicked my ass!! Have 2.5 liters of water & energy food. Great shoes and poles help dramatically.
