Hiking The Bonelli Park Loop Trail

Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park is a recreational park in Southern California that contains the 250 acre Puddingstone Reservoir. This park provides countless recreational activities for those that love the outdoors. On any given day you can see boaters, kayakers, mountain bikers, hikers, trail runners, and beach goers. The Bonelli Park Trail loops around the perimeter of the reservoir and is the feature of this guide.

Hiking Bastard Ridge To Jones Peak, Hastings Peak, And Mt. Wilson

Bastard Ridge is a hike that truly lives up to it’s name. Starting out in Sierra Madre, this hike starts on the Old Mt. Wilson Trail. The level of difficulty is sheerly a byproduct of the nearly unrelenting uphill slog to the top of Jones Peak and beyond. In this guide I will provide photos, my trip GPX, maps, and a description of the hike.

Hiking Mt. Wilson Trail To The Mt. Wilson Observatory via Sierra Madre

Most hikers making their way to the summit of Mt. Wilson begin their journey from Chantry Flat. The Chantry Flat hike is very pleasant, but can be a real nightmare when it comes to finding parking. An alternative, and the subject of this guide, is my favorite route to the summit of Mt. Wilson, The Mt. Wilson Trail.
