California Orange County - Mt. Baldy

Hi girls ~ it’s me, Brandi “B” Rubin

I'd like to share a hosted hike with you up the "let's see what you're made of" glorious and demanding Mt. San Antonio (a.k.a. Mt. Baldy)

Sharing is caring and in true GWH fashion, some cute items will be given away to all of the girls who join me on this hike. It won't be a new car, I ain't Oprah :)

This is a moderate - hard 11 mile steady climb with an elevation gain of 3,900 feet. This is peak # 3 in the 6 pack of peaks if you are participating in that challenge.

Name: San Antonio a.k.a. Mt. Baldy
Difficulty: Moderate - Hard
Elevation gain: 3,900 feet
Date: Saturday July 28th, 2018
Time: 5:45 a.m. (hike starts at 6 a.m.)

Trail head Coordinates: Use this trail head GPS address: Manker Campground, Mt. Baldy, CA 91759 ( Meet at my black tahoe for giveaways/waiver signing/introductions) More specific directions are below.

Passes / Permits: Adventure Pass required. If you don’t have an Adventure Pass, it can be bought @ most outdoor enthusiast retailers (ie; REI, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Big 5). I encourage you to purchase one prior to our hike in case one can’t be purchased at trail head because we may arrive before they open. Adventure pass cost is $5/day or $30/yr. I also strongly recommend carpool/ride sharing

I'd like to keep this hike as a girls who hike member only hike. 
Dogs: no, not this time please.
Kids: No, not this time please.
Men: No thank you, just us girls please.


Directions: Location: From Foothill Blvd. in Claremont, take Mills Ave. until it turns into Mt. Baldy Road. Drive 12 miles north on Mt. Baldy Rd. passed Mt. Baldy Village to the campground. (Note: Foothill can be reached by taking Mountain Ave. north from the 10 freeway). Call (626) 335-1251 for current conditions and additional information.

I will secure a day hike permit for us, all that are in attendance. 

There ARE bathrooms around campground that can be used before/after hike.

NO EVENTBRITE TICKET IS REQUIRED for this hike. Just an old fashion rsvp, please.

If you haven’t yet signed a GIRLS WHO HIKE waiver, please take a minute to do so by following this link to sign.

To participate/attend a GWH event, the waiver must be signed. Good news, you only do it once and it’s good for all future events for the year. I WILL HAVE some printed at the trail head for those who may need it.

What to bring; Please bring what you are comfortable hiking with. This can include, but is not limited to; hat/sunscreen/glasses/bug net/bug spray/ layers for variety of weather (it will undoubtedly get windy & cold at some point on our venture) I have yet to hike a peak that didn’t. Please bring at least 3L of water per person, nutrient filled snacks, trekking poles (if you’d like, not necessary) medical or small first aid kit, GPS or can also refer to the 10 hiking essentials, they are not mandatory but recommended and helpful on any and every hike.

Most importantly, think of what you would want/need to be comfortable and safe. Then pack and bring along with you!

Friendly reminder: This amazing hike is open to all, every single level of hiker. From beginner to intermediate. I am a regular walking pace hiker and would love for us to stay as a group, if possible. 

Thank you girls ~ I hope to see you on the dirt trail
