    I was attempting the Chantry Flats loop, but went to the wrong trail head (this was my first try at this hike). We hiked from the mount Wilson trail head to the radio towers, and it was BRUTAL. It’s pretty steep on the way up this route, and very uneven, which caused me severe issues with my sciatica. Even though this is lower altitude, I found it more challenging than Mt Baldy

    Some damage to the trail from the recent rains, but nothing impassible and volunteers are already doing grading. During the government shut down there is a sign that the trail is closed, but there are no obstacles. (The chantry flats trailhead cannot be accessed right now). Half of the trail had shade, the observatory on top has running water.

    Great hike. Well maintained trail for the first half. Mostly shaded trail.
