Mt BaldyWED5/16/20189:15 AM
Hikers should still be prepared and bring grippers along with all the other hiking gear.

Meet at Freddy’s at 9:15 garden side or trail head at 10:00.

After climbing Baldy some of us may want to proceed toward Black Tail for a scenic ridge walk.

Plan to ride with other people that will hike the same distance if not willing to continue on. Also it’s spring hiking and trails are wet and muddy, wear appropriate shoes.

Difficulty: Moderate - Distance: 2 miles plus if going on ridge walk - Elevation Gain: Less than 500ft - Type: Out-and-Back

Take Eagle River Loop to Skyline, and follow the road as it swichbacks going up and eventually ends with parking alongside the road. Once on the ridge hike for half a mile and you'll see Blacktails, a steep incline that will take you to even better views.
