Mount Baden-Powell Traverse

Mount Baden-Powell Traverse Professional Review and Guide

"Massive Mount Baden-Powell stands head and shoulders above the foggy or smoggy marine layer that often enshrouds the lowlands of the Los Angeles Basin and the Inland Empire. From BadenPowell’s flattish top, the brown Mojave Desert floor stretches interminably inland toward some hazy vanishing point. The disembodied summit ridges of mountain ranges as far west as Ventura County and as far south as San Diego County seem to float over opaque blankets of haze. Santa Catalina, and sometimes other Channel Islands, are visible on an average earlysummer morning."

"On this no-nonsense hike to the top of one of Southern California’s most prominent summits, take in jaw-dropping ridgeline and mountain views, walk past trees older than the English language itself, and get a great workout in the process."
