Good uphill hike. Very shaded and an amazing view at the saddle.

Lots of shade with a steady uphill climb. I have done it several times and will definitely do it again.

Old Baldy up to Josephine saddle is a good steady uphill climb. The saddle area has good camping sites too if you want to backpack in. Dog friendly!

Good workout using Old BaldyTrail to Saddle, returning via Super Trail. Totally different environment from local desert mountain trails. Lots of overhead conifer cover similar to Colorado.
