Wright wood is a hiker-friendly little town. The grocery store has a sign welcoming Pacific Crest Trail hikers next to a display of hiker food. The coffee shop gives hikers a free cup of coffee and takes their picture for the store’s photo album. The hardware store has a trail register.
The Pines Motel, where we stayed, gives rides to the trail and we signed up for one at 6:45 am.
Mount Baden-Powell was the highlight of the day. Named after the founder of the Boy Scouts. It was pretty windy on the summit. We had lunch partially sheltered by a gnarled tree and then hiked on to Little Jimmy Trail Camp.
