Mount Baden-Powell is the 4th highest peak of the San Gabriel Range, Mount San Antonio or "Old Baldy" being the highest at 10064 ft. The summit has long been a favorite of hiking excursions either from the Mount Islip Saddle near Little Jimmy Trail Camp, or the Vincent Gap Trail which leads up a moderate to strenuous set of switchbacks from Wrightwood. Mount Baden-Powell is also the high point along the historic 53 mile Boy Scout hiking trail, The Silver Moccasin Trail, that connects to this summit to Mount Burnham (less than 1 mile away), Throop Peak and Mount Hawkins.
