Mt. Baldy (along with the San Gabriel Mountains), San Gorgonio (along with the San Berardino Mountains), San Jacinto (along with the San Jacinto Mountains), Santiago Peak (along with most of the Santa Ana Mountains), Toro Peak, Hot Springs Mountain, the Palomar Mountains, Cuyamaca Peak, the Laguna Mountains, the Inland Empire, the Pacific Ocean, San Clemente Island and Catalina Island. Bottom-line is this Southern California Hike offers amazing views from the summit and is well worth the trip.
The one negative to this hike is the radio equipment that is on the summit of Elsinore Peak. Also, since you are in the Cleveland National Forest, you will need to have a Forest Adventure Pass displayed in order to park at the trailhead.
Rating: Elevation Gain: 250 ft. (Easy), Distance: 1 Mile Roundtrip (Easy).
Time to Complete Hike: 30 - 45 minutes.
