This hike is for ADVANCED hikers only. What does that mean? You've hiked 10+ miles with over 3,000 feet of elevation gain in the past 4 weeks. We are also saying this because we may need to use microspikes or Ice Axe/ Crampons...more on this based on the weather conditions, so be sure to check for updates closer to the trip date. 

The trail begins at the popular Icehouse Canyon trailhead about a mile beyond Mt. Baldy Village. Permits are required, but are self-serve and available at the Baldy Village Ranger Station. You can also call ahead to the Baldy Village Ranger Station (909-982-2829) the day before and ask them to post your permits on the bulletin board.
