DRIVING ROUTE 1
- From the intersection of I-210 and Angeles Crest Highway (SR 2),
drive north on Angeles Crest Highway 9.5 miles to Angeles Forest
Highway. Keep straight.
- Continue about 4.5 miles to the junction with the Mount Wilson Road
at the Red Box Ranger Station. Turn right.

HIKING ROUTE 1
- Walk to the highest accessible point outside the snack bar.
While not the highest point on Mount Wilson, this is the point
recognized as the summit by the HPS. The actual high point is within a
secured area near a radio tower to the northwest. There is no public
