Trail Overview
Mount Baldy
As you start the trail, you'll pass through Frosty Park where you'll find some great camping spots. The trail ends just below Mt. Baldy and south of Almagre Mountain. You'll have to hike the rest of the way, but you'll get astounding, panoramic views from the top of these peaks. When you're ready to come down, you can return the way you came or drive west through Elk Park.
Getting There
Take Nevada Avenue south from Colorado Springs and turn west on Lake Avenue towards the Broadmoor Hotel. Bear right before going into the hotel, then at the next roundabout, bear left and circle around the back of the hotel. When you reach Penrose Blvd., stay left and go south about a half mile. Turn right uphill on Old Stage Road through upscale residential area. Road soon changes to dirt as it winds steeply uphill. After 7 miles, it runs into Gold Camp Road. Continue another 5.6 miles to well-marked F.S. 379 on right.
