“This is a shady trail connecting Winter Creek with Mt. Wilson.”— Alan Coles
As it approaches a ridge, there is an unsigned junction with a trail leading to the top of the ridge. This was the old trail that used to follow portions of the ridge and had a section on the hotter south side. Fortunately, it was rebuilt on the cooler north side (right turn) and gently climbs up to a saddle with a bench ending at a junction with the Mt. Wilson Trail #11W22.
From the junction it is about 2 miles to the top of Mt. Wilson. There are many fine loop opportunities when combined with the Sturtevant Trail #11W16 and Gabrielino Trail (NRT) 11W14.
