DRIVING ROUTE 3

  • Take the 210 freeway east to Baseline Road exit in the City of Claremont. Turn left (west) at the bottom of the off-ramp onto Baseline Road.
  • Almost immediately, take the first right (north) onto Padua Ave.
  • Go 1.8 miles north on Padua to the intersection with Mount Baldy Rd. Turn right (northeast).
  • Take this road northeast and then north about seven miles to the USFS Mt. Baldy Vistors Center on the left in Mt. Baldy Village.
  • Park in the parking lot of the Visitors Center or along Mt. Baldy Road.

 HIKING ROUTE 3

  • Hike up past the church on Bear Canyon drive. Bear Canyon Drive is about 200' south of the Visitors Center. It soon becomes the Bear Canyon Trail.
  • Hike up the Bear Canyon trail to the 4800' level. At this point the trail turns sharply uphill to the east. Leave the trail, descend and cross the creek to "Erv Bartel" Canyon (not named on the topo). The canyon has a bearing 255° true.
  • Climb the canyon about 1/4+ mile to where it is blocked by brush. The canyon bottom gradient decreases significantly as you climb it.
  • A clipped trail begins uphill to the south next to several thin fallen logs. Follow this clipped trail generally west and up through the brush to the saddle at 5480' and join Route 1.

 

SPECIAL CONDITIONS

The lower section of this route in the gully is steep and loose. Caution must be exercised when ascending and descending this route. Care should be used when crossing the stream after leaving the Bear Canyon Trail.

 

HISTORICAL NOTE

In 1926, the physicist A. A. Michelson mounted a system of lights and mirrors on this peak which, in conjunction with apparatus on Mount Wilson, 22 miles to the west, permitted measurement of the speed of light, and in particular, showed that it was independent of the earth's rotational velocity (i.e. the earth's velocity did not add to the measured velocity in one direction or subtract from it in the other). This fundamental constant became a key to Einstein's Theory of Relativity.
