Loamy singletrack along Baldy Canyon. The trail descends into canyon, crosses the creek, then climbs up the other side before descending into the meadows and back along the canyon.

The trail was purpose-built as a hiking trail for the enjoyment of hikers visiting the commercial properties. Please keep this in mind when riding, respecting both the trail and those using it.

Access Info

Head up Baldy Mountain Road. Just after passing the burn site, look for the trail on the left amongst some trees.

Disclaimer

Trail is maintained daily. Do not attempt to modify the trail.
