WARNING: Be sure to ask hikers who have done Mount Wilson several times in order to find the “Loop” trial. Followed hikers that said a certain trail goes back to the parking lot at Sturtevant trail and got lost. It took an extra 6 miles (total of 20 miles), an extra 3 hours (total of 11 hours), and an Uber ride to get back to my car! On the plus side, I was able to find Henningers Flats camping grounds and will be checking it out in the future!

    Oh dear! That became a serious hike! I recommend you check out Gaiagps.com that is an app you can use to download the route and you can check yourself on the trail, even if there is not ell-reception. It has saved me many a detour! I believe you even got a free trial when you registered here.
