The Sunset Peak “trail” is a winding fire-road hike to one of the front peaks near Mt. Baldy. It makes a great fitness hike and offers fantastic views of the valley and of Mount Baldy. The remains of an old fire tower that burned down years ago are at the summit.
The best video I could find on this one was done by Hike Likers. Enjoy the comic relief.
