Mount Wilson – Newcomb’s Ranch (Extended)

Distance: 73 miles and 8200 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)

The extended long stays with the regular long all the way to Wilson and they start back down together. But when you get back down to Red Box, this extended long splits off.  We offer two options for the extended long (both on the same route sheet). This 73 mile option simply continues up Angeles Crest all the way to Newcomb’s Ranch where you can get a late lunch or snack. Then you simply retrace your route all the way back down Angeles Crest to Foothill and back to the start.  As you can see by the maps below, besides the extra miles, this option adds several thousand feet of climbing. It does not take you higher than the top of Mount Wilson, but there are several ups and downs.
