“A steep trail connecting Manker Flats Campground to Mt. Baldy.”— Tilman Giese
From the hut, the trail traverses west over a large slide area (the formation of the "bowl") then climbs to the top of a ridge directly south of Mt. San Antonio, aka "Mt. Baldy". The trail is less well defined as it climbs steeply north and there are multiple routes up the rocky ridge. They all lead to a saddle just below the summit. The last pitch is steep, but the trail surface is easier to follow. Be sure to look behind you when you reach the summit as there are multiple trails connecting there.
This trail is commonly chosen as part of a loop to Mt. Baldy. If you take this trail up to Mt. Baldy, be prepared for some arduous running and climbing.
