Sooooo what they say about Mount Wilson is true, the trail is EXTREMELY difficult to navigate.  It's not so much that you are climbing over large rocks but more that once you go off route, it may take you 5-10 minutes to re-establish the trail. This may happen more than once but less than 25 times.  My recommendation would be to say up high on the left side of the wash until you are forced to down into the wash.  If you look on AllTrails it shows the trail above the wash. I would also record you route so that if you lose  the trail coming down you can then see your route coming up.  Pay attention to which side of the wash the trail is on it will save you time.

  1. There is no trail to Mt. Wilson. This is a route. Actually, there are several routes to Mt. Wilson. My website has five different routes to the summit of Mt. Wilson
