Mt. Wilson via Sierra Madre

Mt. Wilson via Sierra Madre

This is an out & back, so always optional to make it shorter or longer

Mileage: 14m
Total elevation gain: 5,000ft

Starting in the Sierra Madra, 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.

For most “The Bench” at 5.5 miles will already 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, with bathrooms. Later in the morning the Cosmic Cafe will be open for beverages and snacks.
