Date Climbed: Dec 11, 2007


My friend Kyle's very first hike--the old-school way to do it--Old Mt. Wilson trail. Very pretty, very nice, and towards the end we ascended into a cloud, so that when we got to Eagle Lookout, all we could see was a wall of grey. Definitely worth it though. Very green and pretty.

So what if I drove up there? I already spent 4 hours trying to get to Dawson Gap on Angeles Crest Hwy! The antennae are pretty freaky. And soooo, on to Mt Markham. :P

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.

JanGMany times (in all seasons)


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!

ChuckOMany times  Sucess!


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.
