We decided to setup a car shuttle between West Baldy Trail #94 and East Baldy Trail #95. Left a vehicle at TH 95 and drove back to 94 to start the hike. First part of hike is along West Fork Little Colorado with great creek side views and meadows. This goes on for about 2.5 miles and is well worth the hike even if you can't do the whole mountain. Eventually the trail starts heading up away from West Fork and through several sections of downfall. This can be tedious especially with a large backpack as we saw passing several backpacking groups.

After covering most of the climb and downfall we made it to the ridgeline and the trail junction with East Baldy Trail #95. Then up to the summit which we were lucky to have sunshine and no snow. We really dodged a bullet all day with snow showers all around and nothing falling on us until the last mile. Back at the junction we took a break fueling up for the hike back down.

Not far from the junction we passed the plane wreckage site and spring. Still a few snow patches along the trail but nothing significant. About half way down East Baldy Trail we hit a nice section of rock formations. Cool spires and outcrops which lasted about 3/4 mile. After that we cruised down the rest of 95 and it wasn't until the last mile that it started to snow a bit :)
