Mount Wilson, Mount Harvard


By: Patty Kline

Leaders: Patty Kline, Craig Estes

We met at 7:30AM at Chantry Flat for this 17 mile, 4900 feet of gain hike. The hike was led at a fast pace, by way of Big Santa Anita Canyon up the beautiful stream that feeds Sturtevant Falls to the top of Mount Wilson (5710 feet), where we had lunch. Then we went down to Mount Harvard (5441 feet) via the old toll road. After everyone signed the register, and had some more to eat, we headed back down the road to catch the Winter Creek trail for our descent. The weather was great. Everything was lush and green (including the poison oak). We were back down to the cars by about 5PM. A good time was had by all. Craig did a great job of leading this hike for his "O" rating.
