Very challenging hike due to incline and elevation but great views and great work out.

register ridge to Baldy is an ass kicker. It is not many miles but hell it's straight up. Great workout and hike.

I did this trail clockwise and started up Baldy Bowl because I couldn't find the start of Register Ridge. Do not attempt going down Register Ridge unless you are a mountain goat capable of sliding down loose rocks without injury. Bring water (I brought 48 oz), snacks, trekking poles and wear proper hiking shoes.

Great hike. Steep!

Great trail and as others mentioned, steep- you'll end up on devils backbone at the trail split. You got a few options from here, go left to summit baldy, go straight to summit mt Harwood, or you can go ahead and do a double summit (Mt Harwood & Baldy). On a side note: Harwood isnt that hard at all, its more like a hill.

This trail is steep and strenuous with great views along the way. it's one of the quickest and shortest ways to bag Mt. Baldy.
