The path I chose started at Mankor Flats (elevation about 6,200) then climbed for 4.6 miles to Devil's Backbone. It took Lon and myself about an hour and fourteen minutes to get up and about 45 minutes down.
A quick snack at the car, refill the the bottle, say bye to Lon and then run back up again. The second time also took an hour and fourteen minutes, so apparently power walking DOES take the same amount of time as trotting mini-baby step style up steep hills!
If I look a little dismayed, it's because this is my second trip up
This is the top of the chairlift, about a quarter mile before Devil's Backbone with the peak of Baldy just beyond the trees.
