Once your dog is watered and leashed, take the Super Trail 134 southeast from the parking area. Your path initially lies under the shade of a cool oak and mixed-pine forest; however, there are large sections of this trail that are exposed. Watch summer temperatures carefully while planning your trip, and even on the mildest days, bring more water than you think you need. Super is a “super” steep trail in places; you will gain 4000 feet in 13 miles. What you and your dog will enjoy about this longer, drier route is that it is almost entirely within the Mt. Wrightson Wilderness Area and is much less crowded than the Old Baldy Trail.

Great running trail. The holly and wild rose can cause a few problems above 8000' if you are in shorts (I was), but overall a well-designed trail with good grade. Made it to the top in 1:58:54, descended the Old Baldy Trail (also very nice--less sun exposure). The fire damage is a pity, but part of the experience.
