    Any hike where you ascend to a summit is usually a excellent hike well worth the effort. Mount Wilson is no exception. I started at the uppertrail of chantry flat and by the time I made it to the ridge I was still feeling good. Note that once you come to the ridge you should see a lot of sunlight from the other side of the bushes on your left. At any point here you should be able to cross the bushes and find another path where tall grass surrounds you and you can follow this path along the ridge instead of behind the mountain and have beautiful re energizing sights for the next mile and a half or so. Also note that once you come back to the toll road and you should stay to your right side of the path as you might miss the path that leads to the summit and instead descend the mountain toward alta dena. After you hit the summit you can have lunch from your pack or at the cosmic cafe if you went on a weekend and even take a tour of the observatory, which by the way makes this hike very special because you will feel like a little kid on a field trip once summiting and a mountain and seeing these really cool telescopes and stuff! After that you can go back or descend the mountain via the stourtevant falls trail which is also an excellent trail. I recommend coming up that way though. all in all this hike took me 5 hours with a 30 minute lunch break. and left me begging for more but sore as hell. add an extra mile to your already 14 mile hike to check out stourtevant falls if you have the energy.
