We spent this weekend up at Sturtevant Camp in the San Gabriel Mountains – basically in our backyard. I can’t believe we had never been up here before. It’s a hike-in camp on the trail up the Mount Wilson, about 4 or 5 miles up. It’s not a terribly difficult hike, and the reward is a comfy place to stay in an adorable cabin, with real restrooms and hot water, plus a mess hall and communal kitchen to use. Also, very nice people to hang out with!
On the way back, we took the trail up over Mt Zion and down the Upper Winter Creek trail to avoid having to walk up the fire road back to Chantry Flats. It was well worth the extra half mile.
