The Mt. Wilson Loop via Chantry Flat was stunning. We encountered several stream crossings, waterfalls, and beautiful landscapes. We hiked in the shade for almost the entire trail which made it extremely enjoyable. The bugs however were out of control. The moment we stopped to take a breathe, a family of bugs would swarm us. I’m all for protein; but I prefer not eat to bugs. Keep your mouths closed throughout this hike. Those bugs are everywhere. Overall, this hike was challenging due to elevation gain. The last two miles to reach the peak is rough!
