Here’s another one for the hikers! Mt. Wilson is a great and fun hike for those that are really trying to get a good work out in. Make sure to have a quick and light bite to eat before enduring this hike. Majority of the hike is incline with rocks and steps along the way, so you’re really working and pushing yourself all the way up. To the first water, it’s 1.5 miles. Once you’ve reached this point, you can walk down a ways and come to a really cool and relaxing little river. A lot of people like to bring their pets and let them run around the water, so this hike is very pet friendly!
To the very top of Mt. Wilson, it’s about 7 miles; therefore, a total of 14 miles. 7 up, and 7 down. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten that far, but hopefully soon!
Either before or after, you should really check out the what-used-to-be “Lizzie’s Trail Inn.”
In this cute little place there are so many historical pictures and articles about Mt. Wilson and the city of Sierra Madre itself. It’s a great little spot to stop by after a hike just to see how the trails started and what it was like from the beginning.
