Outside of the Grand Canyon, this is my favorite hike in AZ!

We started from the East Baldy TH; went up the East Baldy Trail to the East and West Baldy junction; came down the West Baldy trail; and then took the Crossover Trail back to the East Baldy trail.

Along the way we saw a bear on the East Baldy Trail and saw an elk on the West Baldy trail.

There were about 50 fallen trees to deal with on the East Baldy trail and about 100 to deal with on the West Baldy trail. The trees on the West Baldy trail were generally more difficult to negotiate than the ones on the East Baldy trail, and I was glad that we were descending on the West Baldy Trail.

I think that I like the West Baldy trail best, but many people probably like the East Baldy Trail better.

Given that the WMAT has a fire danger closure on their land at the summit, we did not venture past the tribal land boundary at the top.
