Started at Devore and hiked to the peak up Strayns Canyon with a group of Boy Scouts. Made for a good hike, but I don't think I'd do it again.

Zhenya77Mt. Wilson Trail Run  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2005

I parked near the gated closed road (end of Santa Anita Drive). It was a beautiful mildly cold morning. I ran from the closed gate on the wide open empty road to the parking lot (Chantry Flats) leading towards Mt.Wilson. It is a nice elevation gain with continues uphill run where there is no room for rest. Defiantly do it. If the road is closed, you are guaranteed to have plenty of solitude.

I have hiked up & down this familiar mountain so many times over the years that I have lost count. The first time [in 1986] was up from Sierra Madre & down to Altadena. Subsequently I also hiked to the top from Chantry Flats, but my favorite route remains the round trip from Sierra Madre (old Mt Wilson trail). The latter trail is a great way to get in shape & build endurance. Once the hike becomes "too easy" then I move on (for training) to the Mt Baldy trail (up & down from Baldy Village).

In my experience, the best time for hiking the standard trail is late winter or early spring [when the wild flowers are in full bloom and there might be some snow above the Toll Road]. The worst time is summer when rattle snakes are plentiful and very close to the trail!

Many times, by most of the routes. By foot and mountain bike. Most times via the Toll Road - grew up in Altadena, about a 1/4mile from the bottom of the Toll Road.

I think the first time was from Chantry Flats, also have gone up the Rattlesnake Trail from the back, on the road from Mt. Lowe, and by mtn. bike via the Toll Road. However my favorite is the Old Mt. Wilson Trail from Sierra Madre.

Hike from Wilson down towards Sturtevant area and just burned my legs out. The hike up was much more enjoyable. I have to give it another go at some point.

Went up from Sierra Madre on the Old Mt Wilson Trail. Harder than expected, quite a bit of elevation gain. Have done in the past from Chantry Flat, this is more challenging. Quite a few shaded areas, but alot of sun. Don't recommend it on a hot day.

Great hike from Sierra Madre. When finished, Bean Town is usually open in Sierra Madre.

Memorable and enjoyable day--not so much for the hiking or views, but just the whimsical nature of seeing a "peak," guessing that it was an HPS one, and tagging it. Bob and I did 13, but with some semblance of planning that number could easily reach into the 20s.
