You can start this trail at Bog Springs Campground, Madera Picnic Area, or the Madera Ampitheatre. Around 1 mile in, the trail splits in two directions; one takes you past Bog Springs, the other past Sylvester Spring. Both paths are equidistant and meet up at Kent Springs after 2 miles. Around 2 miles later you will arrive at Amour Spring, then another half mile brings you to the junction with Crest Trail. This junction marks the end of Four Springs Trail.

Great long hike! Old baldy trail is steep with lots of switchbacks. Bring lots of water! The super trail has lots of very sharp bushes growing onto the trail, so wear pants! Beautiful views on top, worth the work!

this trail can be cold and shady in the winter. I forgot a jacket but found a animal chewed used jacket in a pile. God does provide!

12/29 - LOTS of snow on most of Old Baldy trail from 7500' to the summit. It varies from 1" to 10-12" around the switchback turns, and was very wet underneath. We had on low top hiking boots and our feet were soaked and cold for most of the trip.

This is one omg my favorites!!! Challenging at times but huge payoff in the end. There was about 1" of snow and quite a bit ice after baldy saddle but taking it slow will get the job done. Love the views and I highly recommend the hike. Be sure to plan a full day to take it all in.

This trail was great. Challenging but worth it for the great views. My 10 year old son was able to handle going to the peak and back down. He was pretty exhausted afterwards but was glad he did it.

Did the Super Trail round trip. There is a fork about half way up, there is a tribute to the lost boy scouts, stay right to stay on Super. It is longer than Old Baldy but I enjoyed it, much better views. YmThe hike was amazing. It had rained recently so all the creeks and waterfalls were running pretty good. There is a lot of vegetation growing over the trails so wear pants. I took 4 liters of water, drank 3. The hike is long but worth it. Highly recommended.
