JohnniferLoop from Millard CG  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 19, 2015
Trail climbing out of Millard Canyon to Tom Sloan Saddle in bad condition. Hard to find, but very followable for lower portion. Trail later disappears into steep use trail until TS Saddle. Trail going west from here in very good condition, not overgrown. Took southwest ridge from Brown Mtn to hit Brown Fire Road. Not the path John Robinson describes, but heavily used and followable despite overgrown and steep.

Date Climbed: Nov 17, 2012


Last peak of the day after Echo Mtn. and Muir Peak. It rained for much of the way between Muir Peak and Brown Mountain which pretty much soaked me to the bone and covered up any views to be had. At least it wasn't too cold.

Went up Lower Sam Merrill to Castle Canyon reaching Inspiration Point. Then took the Mt. Lowe Road to the the Bear Canyon Trail. Roughly 18 miles roundtrip. Been on my list for awhile and didn't disappoint.

bechttNice loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 28, 2008


Inspired by JMunaretto's trip report. The shortcut down to Oakwilde Campground starts 1.1 miles past the Visitor Center at the beginning of the ACH. From there it's up Brown's NW ridge via the Ken Burton trail and the firebreak and then down to the Tom Sloan saddle via the East Ridge. Returned via the amazing Bear Creek trail.

Nice early spring hike. Went up Millard Canyon from Sunset Ridge then down the northwest ridge and back on the fire road. Mostly overcast but fun nonetheless.

Date Climbed: Jan 1, 2008


Recovering from the flu, so hardly ran at all. To avoid the New Year's Day festivities in Pasadena (parade, traffic, detours), went up from Eaton Saddle. Beautiful day--great start to the year!

BLTUp Millard, down fire road  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 17, 2005


Did the big loop up Millard Canyon and down the west ridge to the fire road. Brown is a great little mountain that very few people bother to walk up. It's their loss!

Back in CA for a few weeks and just did this hike again. Millard Canyon was beautiful. Have done both the fire road and the route up Millard Canyon past Dawn Mine to Tom Sloan Saddle, which is my favorite.

Augie MedinaClimbed From Various Trailheads

I always enjoy climbing Brown Mountain because of its ridge routes. I've climbed it several times from the various trailheads giving you access: Millard Canyon Campground, Sunset Ridge, Eaton Saddle, and Switzer Picnic Area. It's fun to do a loop going up the east ridge and descending the northwest ridge or vice versa.
