Big Baldy Ridge, Part 2

Hiking the Big Baldy Ridge Trail

Hiking the Big Baldy Ridge Trail

This easy trail is only four miles long, round trip. It begins in the woods and slowly climbs up to Big Baldy’s exposed rocky ridge. The dirt path along the Big Baldy Ridge Trail winds its way in and out of a deep, green pine and fir forest, interchanging with wide open, rock-strewn spaces. The underbrush, as well as the rocky sections, are scattered with native mahogany-barked bushes such as chinquapin and manzanita. Large, gray boulders are interspersed throughout the entire route.

However, not all of the boulders are gray.

One of the most striking sights along the trail is a collection of large, pink quartz boulders, which sparkle like gems in the sunlight. These rose-colored rocks are smattered with white, black and yellow minerals, adding depth to their color. Vivid, yellow flowers with their lacy, pale green stems cover the hillside, filling in around the stones.

Thank you for reading “The Big Baldy Ridge Hike!” Stay tuned for tomorrow. I will be posting pictures of the nice variety of wildflowers, which grow along this trail!
