Awesome hike. We hiked up the scree under the ski lifts. It saved time, but burned the legs. If you desend the devils backbone, you can stop at the lodge for a cold one.

A little to peoply for me, I went on a weekday and still lots of people, a lot turn back at the Hut as it was just too tough for people not prepared or experienced. It is very steep and tough hike. Did the loop clockwise and ddi not take the Chairlift but did grab a beer at the top. If you Hike all of So Cal you gotta do it, but once is enough.

Great set of peaks they've got there. I did these two and Cucamonga in one punishing day. See my recording 3 trails, 1 day. Super hard. Stunning views and lots of people. Big Horn seemed to be the one the fewest folks went out to. It was hot and tiring. Bring more water than you think you need, as none is available at the Kelly Camp.

This was a great hike. It's pretty tough up to the ski Hut but well worth it when you get to the summit. There were only a few people at the top today while I was there. The views were great and it was clear enough to see out to Catalina.
The descent from the summit to the Devil's Backbone is pretty steep and I was glad to have the trekking poles. The Devil's Backbone Trail was cool and not as steep as the trail up. After those two legs of the hike it was nice to get to the Notch and have a beer before heading down the fire road to Manker (with a quick detour to the falls to complete the day).
It was a great way to spend a day.

Did a good loop hike of the Three T's Trail. Started in Icehouse Canyon, then up to Icehouse Saddle, hit the 3 T's peaks, down to Baldy Notch, then Manker Flats, then a short stretch on Mt Baldy Road back to Icehouse Canyon. About 17 miles total. Very fun hike and decent prep for Whitney. I have full hike directions for the Three T's Trail hike on my blog. Check it out. HikingGuy.com

Phenomenal butt kicking hike! Camped at Manker the night before so we could leave really early. One of the best hikes I have done in SoCal. Variety of views and vegetation are superb. Make sure you leave early and pack enough water. However, if you descend via the Ski Hut trail there is a stream crossing that is delicious. Right next to the Ski Hut. I always enjoy taking back some spring water home. My daughter calls it ¨magic water¨. Don't forget to stop at Mt. Baldy Lodge for a good burger or drink!

Did this trail all the way to the summit then to west Baldy and down. I've heard this trail be called "the Baldy death march" and it lives up to the hype. 6,000ft elevation gain in 6 steep as it gets for hiking miles. I brought 4 liters of water as well as the essentials. Definitely the most challenging trail up Baldy and I would not recommend to the inexperienced or out of shape. Also *expect to add a extra mile each way due to no parking allowed at trail head.* 14 total miles according to my gps.

What a great hike! My 15 year old son and I did it clockwise without chair lift. The final ascent from Devil's Backbone is demanding as all heck, but otherwise a scenic and rewarding hike. Better views and terrain than San Jacinto.

Phew! Did this as an out and back. Clocked in on my gps at 6745 elevation gain over 16.4 miles. This was in basecamp, when uploaded to alltrails the numbers change for some reason. Great and very tough hike. Go early and bring water. The only consistent water is in the very beginning of the hike from Icehouse canyon.

Trail is as maintained as can be. Not too hard to find. I suggest going up near the bowl and descending down the devils back bone, which is what I did. A lot easier on the knees coming back down. You can even stop and eat, maybe even ride the lift down ($12 one way). not bad.. great hike.

excellent hike. did it this AM. suggestion for summer hikers: try to take off by 7am. you can miss much of the day heat that way.
I did it clockwise. the early leg (t.h. to the summit) is moderate to strenuous 4 miles. so, you wanna do it fresh and early. from the summit down, who cares if it gets hotter and you get somewhat tired; it's easy/moderate downhill 6 miles. oh, and the first 2-2.5 hours meanders through shade.
