Difficulty: This is gonna be a doozy, physically speaking. Without snow and ice this can take like 6 hours and, well, it's the winter. But WOW think of the rush when you're standing on the summit at over ten thousand feet looking out with The Circle of Life running through your head on repeat for the last two hours.
The hike is 11 miles long, with slightly less than 4,000 feet of elevation gain.
We’re going to be attempting to summit Mount Baldy (aka San Antonio), a iconic Southern California peak, in a single day. Get your adventure pants, also some cold weather gear as we haul ourselves up a few thousand feet of elevation gain over 11 miles.
