Mount Baldy Lower Route

This was my first time hiking the lower route and holy moly I wish we would have known about it earlier. If you have small children, and especially if you are carrying one on your back, use this trail instead of the main one. It's all the fun and views of climbing Baldy without the tears and scrambling. Just go straight past the gate from the parking area. You'll come to a pond and the turnoff to go up is there. It's well-defined and just keep following it until you're on top! You'll end up on the saddle rather than the, um, knob but you just have to walk the ridge until you get there. Et voila! Baldy with small kids! They can also cool off in the pond at the end.
