Recently I went hiking up to Mt Wilson from Chantry Flats with a hiking group from San Diego. As much as I love hiking in San Diego County I love seeing a change of scenery once in a while and this hike did not disappoint. This hike has a lot of interesting history dating back to the mid 1800’s when it was used to look for lumber for a local winery down in the valley. You will find a community of cottages along the Big Santa Anita Canyon as you make your way up that date back to the late 1800’s through the 1920’s that are all privately owned but maintained as they first where built. For most of the way you will be under lush green tree cover hiking along a beautiful creek and then you will make your way up to the world famous Mt Wilson Observatory’s. What a great hike.
