This was a guided hike with a group of twenty or so people. The hike followed the red trail up beside Old Baldy, along a ridge to the west, down to painted rock and eventually to crystal cave before heading back to the campground. The trail has a little less than 600 feet of net elevation gain mostly done in short fairly intense segments.
Of particular interest were artifacts left from the days when crews of CCC workers created the trails.
