Chantry Flats/Mt. Wilson
One of the best runs in the San Gabriels. Passes through chaparral-coated slopes with expansive canyon views, lush conifer forest and streamside woodland, sampling the grandeur of the Big Santa Anita watershed. We will climb from Chantry Flats up Winter Creek with 3600' to Mt. Wilson and down Sturtevant Trail to our loop. We will NOT caravan from the high school. DRIVE DIRECTLY TO THE BOTTOM OF HILL AT CHANTRY FLATS before at 6:15 AM, but since an Adventure Pass is needed to park at Chantry Flats, we will stop at the bottom of the hill at the last residential street on your right before the drive to Chantry Flats--the intersection of Santa Anita Avenue and Arno Drive (BOTTOM MAP). From there we will carpool to the top at Chantry Flat. If you are driving straight to the trail head, this is where you should meet before 6:20. Adventure Day passes are available at REI for $5.
