Trail Ratings Defined

This road is used to service communication towers at the top of Mt. Baldy. It is usually maintained, but frequent rock slides along narrow ledge road 379A can make the road more difficult. If you run into a rock slide, you may have to back up a considerable distance to find a wide spot to turn around.

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!
