Difficulty: Strenuous: A long hike (10+ miles) with several thousand feet of elevation gain. Be sure you're ready to handle that.

A Southern Californian hiking classic beckons. Join your awesome guides Noa + Bob & Bill on a trek to LA county’s highest point: the summit of Mount Baldy! (Mount San Antonio for those who fancy themselves old-fashioned) For SC Outfitters this is a fan-favorite adventure: annually run and annually enjoyed. This is particularly exciting because it will be the first trip to Baldy of the new school year! Woo! The hike to the summit is a challenge, but it is one that is well worth the effort, as it brings a simply breathtaking view of all that lies below. You don’t want to miss it.
Fun-Fact: Thanks to the northern San Andreas fault’s subduction under southern faults, Mount Baldy is growing by as much as two inches every year! Get stoked to climb Baldy and reach an even higher peak!
