Just a two hour drive from Los Angeles to Guffy Campground will give you a wonderful launching point to some of the finest wilderness in the San Gabriel Mountains. Even though we hiked this trail on the July 4th holiday, with the exception of the summit which was overrun by people who took the ski lifts, not another soul could be found along this lonely route. The ascent from the saddle between Dawson Peak and Baldy is a burner, but watch your pace because once you get to the summit you still have to turn around and head back cresting Dawson Peak and Pine Mountain again. The three tallest peaks of Angeles National Forest in one trip is ample reward.
