This steep ridge trail segment connects the Baldy Bowl Trail to the Devil’s Backbone Trail. It is an unmarked “use trail”, but is reasonably clear to follow when you know what to look for.  So, first you need to get onto the Baldy Bowl Trail from road leading up to Baldy Notch.

Soon, you will pass the register.

Register on the Baldy Bowl Trail

The unmarked junction for the Register Ridge Trail is located shortly after the register (about 0.2 miles from the junction with the road leading to Baldy Notch).
