Description - Mt. Baldy by Kimberly J Creighton

Visible throughout the entire Los Angeles Basin, Mt. Baldy, originally known as Mt. San Antonio and affectionately referred to as Old Baldy, is the tallest peak in the majestic San Gabriel Mountains. Approximately 49 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, Mt. Baldy first gained popularity during the Great Hiking Era the decades before and after the turn of the 20th century when visitors traveled up San Antonio Canyon to hike, camp, fish, and hunt. Before outdoor recreation became fashionable, the resource-rich area was a haven for gold miners and businessmen who sought their fortunes in the steep and rugged terrain. Despite natural disasters in recent decades, the mountain community continues to receive record numbers of visitors to its rustic lodges, state-of-the-art ski facilities, and superb hiking areas. The community of Mt. Baldy Village, once known as Camp Baldy, is a quaint and picturesque locale that includes a post office, volunteer fire department, school, church, visitor s center, and resort accommodations."
