Tyler Peak and Mt Baldy Loop

This is an excellent early season loop hike with plenty of elevation. This was a Peninsula Wilderness Club hike. I have posted about this trip before so I will be short with the description. If you haven't done this one yet, what are you waiting for?

Looking back to the Baldy false Summit. You can barely see Abbey and her dog making their way across on the low spot of the ridge.

      Hi Teresa. Nice catch. It was actually July 10th 2016. I’m a little behind in posting some stuff. Hopefully I’ll be adding a lot more trips I’ve done over the last year or so very soon.
