Hiking in the Backyard of Los Angeles

Mount Wilson Trail 2014-05-025One of the qualities of life in Los Angeles is the immediate access to nature.  During our stay in Sierra Madre we used the opportunity to hike one of the Los Angeles trails with a long tradition, the Mount Wilson Trail. During the first half of the last century the legendary Pacific Electric “Red Cars” connected downtown LA with the trail head and thousand of people came out for a weekend hike. In 1908 the Mount Wilson Trail Race was established and continues on since then. Huffing and puffing up the the 7 miles / 11.2 km with an elevation gain of 4745 feet / 1600 meter we realized how out of shape we already became since our return to LA seven weeks ago.
