    Thanks mucho for the answers. I've done Palomar, but never Baldy (which is odd, b/c I'm closer to Baldy). Anyway, I'll have to give it a whirl in the near future.

    I've never ridden up Mt. Baldy, but want to do it a few times this year.

    Trying to get an idea of what it's like. How would it compare to Palomar?

    It was said earlier in the thread, but the reason that group's membership is so huge is b/c cyclists have taken it over. If you read the discussions, and look at the pix, it's dominated by riders.
