Icehouse Canyon to Icehouse Saddle Trail

Just completed a few days ago. Relatively tough hike. Lots of shade and wildlife. Saw a few Big horn sheep. I was hiking up to 6 miles and thought this would be easy. Still sore after 3 days. Great hike though. I'll do it again.

The overall length is more than 13 miles loop trail by using alltrail’s app and GPS to record the distance. Nearly 6 miles from parking lots to the top, 3 to 3.5 miles from the top to restaurant, and 4 miles from restaurant to parking lots. The first 6 miles is definitely not trail for everyone.

Three T's Trail

I met 2 friends at 730am on Sunday at the Mt. Baldy Ski Lifts. They parked right below the lot so they wouldn't have to pay the $5 to park. I then drove the 3 of us back to the Icehouse Canyon parking lot. If you don't do a car shuttle it would be an 8 mile walk between the two or you would have to catch a ride with a stranger. A massive rain storm had come through the area in August so the Icehouse trail was a bit different in sections, a lot more boulders. At the saddle we had a snack, then headed onto the Three T's trail. The three T's include Timber, Telegraph, and Thunder. Timber is 0.25 miles off the main trail and is at 4.45 miles at an elevation of 8319ft. At 6.85 miles you reach an unnamed peak we mistook for Telegraph at 8898ft. At 7.25 miles you get to Telegraph peak at 8982ft, it is also 0.25miles off the main trail. You then head down to the last peak, Thunder, at 8540ft. Then you head down a ski lift trail to the Baldy Notch where we took a chair lift down for $12 (only operates Fri-Sun during the summer). We took a route labeled easy for the skiers. Dave and I felt a fourth "T" could have been added in place of the unnamed peak. The trail was a bit overgrown, but not much; however, I would advise wearing pants. The views are magnificent after the saddle. I love this trail, I would definitely do it again. It is a great training hike for the Sierras with its high elevation and 5000ft elevation gain!!

Took this trail a couple months back with my mom. We didn't do any previous research and took on the trail with minimal equipment. That was a mistake. Although we finished the hike, I would suggest bringing a decent pair of hiking boots and trekking poles. And also bring a light jacket! Pocohontas is definitely painting with the colors of the winds on this one.

My son and I did this hike today. We started around 8am. The parking lot was very crowded. Probably should of arrived a little earlier. There were plenty of people on the trail to the saddle. After the saddle there were just a few. All and all it was a very nice hike.
