Description

From Pecos Baldy Lake, look for the Skyline 251 angling up the hillside strating at the far southeast corner of the lake basin. This trail switchbacks up the north facing slope to the south of Pecos Baldy Lake and continues to the top of the ridge. From this saddle, the Skyline Trail drops down the other side of the ridge to the south, while the East Pecos Baldy Trail begins to switchback up the southeast face of East Pecos Baldy. The climb is steep and the trail is rocky. The high elevation may also add to the difficulty of the trail.
