Overview

This run takes users past San Antonio Falls up a fairly steep trail to the Sierra Club ski hut.

Need to Know

Adventure Pass required to park at the trailhead.

Description

From the parking area at Manker Flat, head north on Baldy Road #3N01, a 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 #7W02 which heads north. Take a left to follow Baldy Bowl Trail #7W02 as it ascends steeply along the edge of the San Antonio Canyon. The trail is steep but at least it is shaded by white fir, Jeffery pine and sugar pines. The right turn for the Sierra Club ski hut is two miles from the junction with Mt. Baldy Road #3N01. There is a spring near the hut.

To return, head back the way you came.
