Baldy Road, also known as 3N06, is in the Cajon Pass area of the San Bernardino National Forest. It is a very scenic, enchanting road. 3N06 begins at the top of Lytle Creek Canyon and extends up to Mount Baldy Ski Area.

This trail is permanently closed, and it is behind a locked gate. Use is restricted to US Forest Service, MT Baldy Ski Area and SBNFA AAT work trip personnel.

If you wish to volunteer for a work trip, then that would probably be the best option for running the trail. (It is a fire road, with great views and is extremely scenic).

As of May 17 2010, The San Bernadino National Forest "Current Conditions" Page lists 3N06 as re-opened. [1]

As of August 08 2010 the gate previously closed is broken out its foundation. Mt. Baldy Visitor Center (909)982-2829 confirms that the roads up to Mt. Baldy are not open to public motor vehicle travel. San Bernardino Forest statment "It will be the public's responsibility to refer to the Motor Vehicle Use Map to determine designated routes for motor vehicle use. The Motor Vehicle Use Map will be updated annually to correct mapping errors or discrepancies. Routes not shown on the Motor Vehicle Use Map are not open to public motor vehicle travel. Routes designated for motorized use may not always be signed on the ground, but will be identified on the Motor Vehicle Use Map". It is prohibited to possess or operate a motor vehicle on National Forest System lands on the San Bernardino National Forest other than in accordance with these designations (36 CFR 261.13). Violators of 36 CFR 261.13 are subject to a fine of up to $5,000, imprisonment for up to 6 months or both (18 U.S.C. 3571(e)). This prohibition applies regardless of the presence or absence of signs.
