Hike Log

My. Baldy – 5/2


San Antonio Falls/Manker Flats

Type of Hike:

Day hike

Trail Conditions:

Trail in good condition


Road suitable for all vehicles


No bugs


Snowfields to cross – could be difficult

Started the hike at 6am. I went up Devil’s Backbone (had it to myself). Travel is in great shape; no snow on the Backbone. Summit was spectacular (again, had it to myself for a good ten minutes; mid-week hikes are the best).  Came down via Baldy Bowl/Ski Hut trail.  There is still a fair amount of snow from this direction (just below the summit).  Micro spikes were sufficient – but the trail was hard to find at a couple of places.  Coming down from this direction is a killer (steep) – but so beautiful!  First time up Baldy. Can’t wait to do it again.  About 7.5 hours round trip.
