A nice run up to the Sierra Club Hut.

John McKinney

Overview

This run takes users past San Antonio Falls up a fairly steep trail to the Sierra Club ski hut.
Features: Spring — Views — Waterfall

Description

From the parking area, head north on Mt. Baldy Road, a fire road with an easy grade. At 0.5 miles, the road turns to head back south; at this northern point, runners will have a nice view of the falls, but the adventurous can reach the bottom of the falls by following a rough trail further north. Do not try to climb the falls.

Return to the road and continue on; at almost one mile, there is a junction with Baldy Bowl Trail which heads north. Take a left to follow Baldy Bowl Trail as it ascends steeply along the edge of the San Antonio Canyon. The trail is steep but at least it is shaded by fir, ponderosa, and Jeffery pine trees. The right turn for the Sierra Club ski hut is two miles from the junction with Mt. Baldy Road. There is a spring near the hut.

To return, head back the way you came.
