Trail ends at a large gate below Mt. Baldy and south of Almagre Mountain. You can hike to both peaks. On a clear day, enjoy views of south Colorado Springs below. Great camp spots along first half of trail where it passes through Frosty Park. Difficult Eagle Rock, Trail #93, connects to Mt. Baldy Trail as it passes through Deer Park. Suitable for stock high-clearance SUVs provided no significant rock slides have occurred along F.S. 379A.

Attempted the Mt. Baldy (Mt. Almagre) trail on 7/30/21. Road 379A has severe washouts/ruts along the narrow shelf, making the shoulder/edge of the road VERY unstable and dangerous. Approximately 1 mile before the gate, the road is completely blocked by several large boulders that broke free from all the rain. It is possible to hike or motorbike past the boulders but is otherwise impassible by any other vehicles. Must back down approximately 1/2 mile over “rock garden” conditions along the very edge of the unstable road with no shoulder. The trail is listed as “easy”… would consider “sketchy” at best, due to road degradation from heavy rains so far this season, and extreme pucker factor along 379A.

As the previous update states, this trail is not easy. It may have been maintained when scouting was done but this road hasn’t seen maintenance for years. Moved several large rocks out of the trail ahead of me before I decided it wasn’t worth the chance in my stock Crosstrek. Turned around at the campground area. If you want a bit of a challenge that’s doable in a stock Crosstrek or similar check out LaSalle pass

This trail was easy a few years ago and I’ve been on it 3-4 times now. It’s not an easy trail now. There’s a washout area I had 2 wheels on the ground at and on the last stretch of road there are 2-3 pretty tough obstacles. It’s pretty eaten up and I barely got over them. I would say this is a high moderate now. I’ve done others recently that was easy… Clear Lake, California Gulch, Hurricane Pass, Governor Basin… Those weren’t even comparable to this.

Tried on May 1st, the last leg on 379A was still too snowy and slick on the shelf road. Don’t attempt yet!
