Mt. Wilson trail from Sierra Madre
Distance: 14 miles (when you go all the way to Mt. Wilson)
Elevation gain: 4,932 ft
Starting in the Sierra Madre, East Pasadena, it’s an out & back with the option to go longer once on top of Mt. Wilson which is 7 miles out and you’ll have run 14 miles by the time you get back to your car.You can go up as long or as short as wished.
For most “The Bench” at 5.5 miles will be a good point to turn around instead of adding the additional 1.5 uphill mileage to Mt. Wilson parking lot where the antennas are build but where you also have potable water to refill water reservoirs.
Bring enough water during hot summer days!
