Accesses the peak of Mt. Baldy with a view of Diamond Lake and Mt. Thielsen. The trail begins on a lodgepole pine covered flat. From there you travel through open stands of mountain hemlock and true fir. Timberline is reached about 1 mile from the summit. The last half mile is quite steep and rocky and may be too difficult for small children.
The volcanic origin of the mountain becomes evident above timberline with many interesting geological formations. Mt. Thielsen and Diamond Lake are in the foreground with the Cascades in the north and Mt. Shasta in the south (visible on a clear day).
The first 2 miles is used for cross country skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer.
