The Secret to LA Sunsets


Location: Mt. Wilson, San Gabriel Mountains, California

Elevation: 5,710 ft (1,741 m) // Difficulty: Advanced 

For anyone living in Los Angeles or surrounding cities you are very well aware of the hiking phenomenon that takes place here. If you’re experienced with the outdoors then this trail is for you – it’s a 12.5 mile loop leading to a waterfall (like many trails in LA).

The first time I visited Mt. Wilson, I have to admit, I only went to a short trail by the Mt. Wilson Observatory to hike in and watch the sunset.  The following photo series is from this first visit and we’ll post a follow up with information on the full hike.
