Head up the Baden-Powell trail and follow the ridge about 3 miles south to Ross mountain. Detailed description in Afoot and Afield LA County. Some very steep sections with difficult footing.

Great trail for some solitude. The last person on the register on Ross was there about a week before me. Didn't see a soul after Baden-Powell. Really beautiful hike, but save some energy for the way back as you basically have to climb Baden-Powell again.
