Chantry Flats/Newcomb Pass/Rim Tr./Mt Wilson/Hoegees Camp


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 Sturtevant Trail and then climb up to Newcomb Pass. Then we will turn left on the Rim Trail to Mt. Wilson. Descending on the Winter Creek Trail and right through Hoegge Camp and Camp Roberts and to complete our loop. We will NOT caravan from the high school. DRIVE DIRECTLY TO THE BOTTOM OF HILL AT CHANTRY FLATS before at 6:30 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 in cars with passes at 6:30. If you are driving straight to the trail head, this is where you should meet before 6:30. Adventure Day passes are available at REI for $5.
