Hiking trails reach the summit from four sides of the mountain, and one route can be completed with assistance from the nearby ski lift. The trails vary in difficulty, and there are plenty of options for novices, as well as experienced hikers.

Mt. Baldy Notch – (3.5 miles one way): The trail begins at Manker Flats, where the Baldy Notch Service Road can be taken to the notch. The trail provides scenic views at the notch, and other trails ahead.

Devil’s Backbone – (3.2 miles one way from Notch: A service road at Mt. Baldy Notch leads to the Devil’s Backbone trailhead and continues to the main peak.

Mt. Baldy Trail – (6.5 miles one way to Mt. Baldy Summit): This is the oldest and longest trail to the summit. Because it starts at Mt. Baldy Village, it has almost 6000′ of elevation gain.

Icehouse Canyon – (3.7 miles one way): The Icehouse Canyon trail begins in the parking lot at Icehouse and goes all the way up to Icehouse Saddle where a number of trails can be taken either to the Notch or to nearby peaks such as Ontario and Cucamonga. (5.5 miles).

Ski Hut Trail – This trail follows the east side of the San Antonio Creek canyon to a small backcountry ski hut owned by the Sierra Club. A use trail continues around the left side of the bowl and then to the summit.

Three T’s – (5.3 miles one way): The trail starts and ends at the Icehouse Canyon Trailhead. It leads to views from the summits of Thunder, Timber and Telegraph Mountains.

Angeles National Forest is registered as California Historical Landmark #717, for being the first National Forest in the state.

The Angeles National Forest covers a total of 700,176 acres, protecting large areas of the San Gabriel Mountains and Sierra Pelona Mountains. It is located just north of the densely inhabited metropolitan area of Greater Los Angeles.

While primarily within Los Angeles County, a small part extends eastward into southwestern San Bernardino County, in the Mount San Antonio (Mount Baldy) area, and a tiny section also extends westward into northeastern Ventura County, in the Lake Piru area.

The San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, established in 2014 and managed by the U.S. Forest Service, is largely within the Angeles National Forest.

The Angeles National Forest manages the habitats, flora and fauna ecosystems, and watersheds. Some of the rivers with watersheds within its boundaries provide valuable non-groundwater recharge water for Southern California. The existing protected and restored native vegetation absorb and slow surface runoff of rainwater to minimize severe floods and landslides in adjacent communities.

The land within the forest is diverse, both in appearance and terrain. Elevations range from 1,200′ to 10,064′. The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the forest.

Joshua Tree Maps
Both Tom Harrison and NatGeo make awesome recreation maps of this popular SoCal desert. Numerous campgrounds, hiking trails, dirt roads, historic mines, and plenty rock climbing spots. In 1934, Joshua Tree was designated as a National Monument and then later became a National Park in 1994. The local Palm Springs Desert BLM office has paper maps that cover the desert canyon areas near Interstate 10.

Joshua Tree Maps can get you beyond the crowds, to the outlying places that few know about. Summers can be hot here in the High Desert at 4000′ elevation, but not as hot as the Palm Springs / Coachella Valley below.

Winters can be chilly and windy, especially with any storm front moving through SoCal. Snow is possible at this elevation. Low temps overnight can drop into the teens during certain times of year – so make sure to bring a zero degree sleeping bag and good thermal undies.

Spring (wildflowers) and autumn are ideal times to visit JTNP.
