Park in the Goldminer’s Daughter/Wildcat Base parking lot on the south side of Hwy 210 to access this service road/trail. The road is moderately-steep to steep, passing through beautiful meadows in a hanging valley, and connects to the top of the Germania Pass-East Greeley trail.

I love this hike but prefer hiking it as a loop-- up on the sugarloaf side and coming down collins or vice verse. Even though it is in the middle of a ski resort, you rarely see people doing this loop and it feels more wilde than what one would expect. Spectacular wildflowers--blooms later than Albion. It's a good challenge though--definitely a "hard"
hike because of elevation.

We saw rare wildflowers as pointed out to us by a nice gentleman on the pass.

This was a fun hike. Lots of wild flowers and even a moose. I'd like to do this hike again.

Lovely hike. Still plenty of snow coverage in certain areas, a little bit of creativity is required if you're trying to stick to the trail proper. Baldy is still looking pretty snow from the SE side, better to approach it from the NE I'd wager.

This turned out to be a better hike that I thought. Starts in the parking lot next to the Gold Miners Daughter. Follows the road to Germania Pass. Its very green and the views are stunning. At the pass you can return the way you came or turn it into a loop via several other trails. You can also turn your hike into a double peakbagging by climbing either Mt Baldy and/or Sugarloaf Mountain.
