Annual Mount Baldy Hike
Members of the OSSC and our sister organization the CVOSA (Ventura OSA) participated in our annual ritual of summiting Old Baldy (Mt. San Antonio 10,064') via the Devil's Backbone trail.
Ambitious hikers took the service road from the Ski Area parking lot to the Top Of The Notch Restaurant. This was a 2.6 mile hike with an eleven hundred foot elevation gain. Others opted to take the ski lift.
