Mount Wilson Trail, California

   
We hiked this trail on 9/8/07. Total r/t miles were 14 from trailhead to summit of Mt. Wilson. This was a very strenuous day hike. Lots of switchbacks (some great than 45 degrees) with plenty of outlook points to view all the way from downtown LA to OC. Trail conditions were somewhat shaded however, plenty exposure to hot sun in morning and afternoon. Bring lots of water (refill water avail. at top). Says Mike and Suz

This great outdoors hiking trail has a total elevation difference of 4,576 feet which is a higher than average number. This great outdoors hiking trail has two trailheads, so if you can get a ride from someone, you can walk it just one way. This is a backpacking and hiking trail that is quite long, so make sure you bring plenty of supplies. This backpacking and hiking trail goes through some very different elevations, and that means that some parts of the backpacking and hiking trail could be very different from other parts of it. With its 11.2 miles of walking distance; it's a long backpacking and hiking trail. Of course, this is an overnight trek, 1.5 days normally, so it's a magnificent thing if your backpack is big enough to do the job. Sometimes this backpacking and hiking trail gets really dry, so do check for current fire restrictions before you go if you plan to bring a stove or make a camp fire.
