Mt. Baldy is a unique Euclidian Place, well known from afar but rarely visited. Access is private and the precipice is dangerous.
The place name has changed through the years. First called Long Point, it later became Old Baldy. More common now is Mt. Baldy.
The actively eroding shale cliff provides a window onto the Late Devonian Age of Fishes sea bottom of 370 million years ago.
Mt Baldy seems firmly in place, but it formed just 14,000 years ago and, in geological time, is rapidly mass wasting into Euclid Creek.
