“A nice trail connecting Hop Canyon Road and North Baldy Trail #8”— Rob Selina
As mapped Hop Canyon Trail #25 is a downhill off of North Baldy Trail #8. The trail is easy to follow in either direction.
From the top of the trail, there is a meadow crossing and a short climb to the start of the switchbacks. The switchbacks are generally well maintained. The surface of the trail alternates between rocks and packed pine needles. The trail gets looser as you approach the final switchbacks leading to the parking lot.
