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.
