I had never hiked in the Mount Baldy area, so Tracie, my intrepid hiking partner, and I decided to go up and down the West Baldy Trail. It was a very nice hike, but after about 5 miles we encountered a fair number of fallen trees for about a mile or so. I would say that the deadfall on this trail is comparable to what you encounter while going up the Escundilla National Trail up to the fire tower atop Escundilla.

On our way back down we saw about 3 elk, but that was the only wildlife that we encountered on this day, unless you count the 3 elk that we saw in the McDonalds parking lot in Payson on our way up to the trailhead. We did see a mountain lion footprint in the snow on the trail however.
