Ok seriously, the Baldy Bowl (ski hut) trail is dry and dusty right now after a long summer of hikers. Lots of loose dirt and dust over rocks, the usual. Backbone looks about the same. I would imagine Bear Canyon would be comparable. 1000 posts in this thread yay!

OK so it was a trick, I was watching when the views passed 1 Million then 2 then 3 so the 1000 was another benchmark , As I call many of my post dribble I have over the years held that would not post much on the Baldy thread , maybe just try to get people to do the Heros Hike.
Baldy is a fine place to train for Whitney I think better than some of the quote Standard hikes, it is close and with the elevation gain in the short distance it builds endurance. Add a few 20 milers on flat ground to test for friction burns and blisters and pacing you should be ready for Whitney.

Another plus for Baldy is you join a group of regulars and they can help you with tips and other Baldy trails that reach the Summit.
The view from the top of Baldy ,one direction you look into the beast the other the vast expanse to the east and at night the light show !!!!!

Rick G. and I enjoyed snow capped Mt. Baldy last Sunday.
The snow was very good,6-12 inch, above 9500 feet.

But, maybe gone by now due to yesterday's Santa Ana wind.

Hi,
Mt. Baldy got a good snow above 8000 feet last week.

Microspike or crampons will be helpful for some icy sections.

Let's hope more snow this week.

Have a great hike.
