Old Baldy Trail #372 Professional Reviews and Guides

"This is the oldest, shortest, and steepest route to ascend the 4,000 feet from the trailhead to summit. Desert dwellers can experience pleasing pine-forest smells, scenery, and shade while taking a break from the heat.

The trail is very popular and occasionally becomes overrun with large hiking groups. With the exception of a few short, rocky sections near the summit, the trail is well maintained and makes the ascent surprisingly manageable, although the steep descent may take a toll on older knees. On a clear day, views stretch from northern Mexico to north of Tucson."
