Mt. Baldy Loop

Saturday, January 8, 2011
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 5 miles, 800 ft (Easy)

The weather gods looked kindly upon our loop hike from Amazon Headwaters to Fox Hollow and the Ridgeline Trail to the Dillard Skyline Park and Mt. Baldy. We stopped on the Headwaters trail to approve the five Douglas Fir trees that Pat Soussan and I planted in early December. I could only remember one line of our haiku poem so am now including the three lines:

Five fir trees planted

Silent, switchback sentinels

Rev'rent feet go by

The loop back included the well-graveled trail down to Spring, the muddy trail on the north side of Baldy and then the rocky power line road to Amazon. The trip took around 2 hours and 45 minutes with stops at trailhead maps and for views. We did take notice of two odd things. On the power line road, we met two young men with one shovel on their way to dig a fort. Back at our cars on Martin Street, a fish or shark mobile car complete with scales, fins, and teeth greeted us.
