Originally planned to see how far I could get towards Wright Mountain, but decided to call it quits at Mt Baldy after finding half the trail covered in snow and ice, starting from the ski hut. I didn’t have spikes, and would have probably turned back if I didn’t at least have trekking poles. Still, a fun hike with some added challenge.

HikingGreat!

The plan was Wright Mountain but the group decided to turn back when we reached the saddle between Mount Baldy and Dawson Peak. Solid hike. A much shorter trail to the peak than via Old Mount Baldy Trail, but a lot more loose rock and some really steep areas, which I enjoyed. The trail after Mount Baldy is not as well maintained as the trail from Manker Flat to the peak, but not too bad. It's also quite steep, so a slower pace is advised. We saw a total of three other hikers on this portion.
