Amazing trail, such stunning views for anybody; photographer or not. The lake below is pristine aqua and so beautiful. Once you climb above the trees you hit a small ridge to climb all the way up, then pretty easy from there with some boulders to get over but nothing technical if you decide to hit the summit and do an out and back. If you decide to continue along to Easy Baldy you do have a technical down climb with about 4-6 feet across of complete exposure. Be sure of your footing and hand holds, have someone help talk you through if needed. Down climb isn't recommended alone for anyone. Once you get past that, smooth sailing and you can run down a scree gully.

Hiked it early this morning. Baldy is a relatively straightforward hike, especially if you only plan to summit the first peak. If you go further on, there are some very aggressive scrambles, up and down, especially leading up to the west peak. There is a lot of snow on the ridge but I didn’t find that to be an issue as it was packed down. Overall excellent hike, that most people could do at any pace, and the views make it well worth it.

A beautiful hike! There is still some deeper snowcover at the top of the peak on the right-hand side of the trail when you come up, but the trail is overall in good condition and the views are very much worth it. It is rated difficult, but if you take your time it is easily manageable. I did it with my mother at her pace and she enjoyed it - we had no problems going up or down.

What an amazing hike. Make sure to bring hiking poles. The view is spectacular! I didn’t find it hard, but I am in great shape.

Did the full loop with my 12 yo girl. Awesome hike! Not so much for the view, but for the obstacle course along the way. Plenty of fun hands-on scrambling. The crux & gendarme to North, the down climb to South and that last steep climb to West. They make the hike very fun and engaging. Lots of people on North, but very few on South & West. The trail is dry, only a bit of snow on the ridge between South & West, but no crampons needed. Poles are very useful to scree down from West. Tons of ticks!

This was done on a whim. Challenging in several sections- be prepared for loose rock, scrambling and the section of exposed rock. The exposed rock climb was sketchy, but doable. Just be prepared and hike safely!
