This trail has really suffered as a result of the 2011 fire. After a couple hundred yards of tree cover, the next mile is through a barren landscape with only some small aspen trees. The next mile does go through some woodlands but it is...More

We actually hiked the Baldy creek trail. I think there are 2 others, West and East Baldy trails. The Baldy creek one is 8 mi. to the summit. We walked about 1/2 of that. There are outhouse type restrooms at the trailhead but you need...More

Easy walking trail with excellent scenery. The up bound slope was easy to walk with walking sticks and the reverse trail was relaxing.

Gorgeous area especially in fall. Smooth terrain possible for kids to do first part of trail. You gain some elevation but it is gradual enough to not be strenuous.

This trail is beautiful and well-maintained. The wildflower meadows and the West Fork of the Little Colorado River reminded me more of places in Colorado. We only went about a mile in and walked along the meandering spring. We relaxed and had a late-afternoon picnic,...More

Although we didn't walk far, we enjoyed beautiful scenery along a babbling brook. Sorry, had to include that. Ran into a father and his three young sons fishing and simply enjoyed the quiet beauty. The pavement simply ends where we began our walk, and it...More

Not an easy hike for those with breathing difficulties due to rugged terrain and high altitude, but for those who can, it is well worth the hike. Only downfall is that trail is not clearly marked in places and path overgrown needing maintenance, but nature...More

The camp is near 9000 feet and is semi improved. Need high clearance vehicle. Photo ops for elk, pronghorn, coyote, turkeys...More

We camped in Greer and had the most wonderful, unobstructed view of the night sky. We even climbed to the top of a ladder which led to a forest ranger's lookout tower. Beautiful view but very scary climb back down that ladder. We saw evidence...More

The White Mountains communities are ringed by the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests, more than two million acres of wilderness and recreation – and the center of White Mountains camping. The 14-mile (round-trip) West Baldy Trail is an excellent choice for a day hike with the kids....More
