Date Climbed: Feb 21, 2015


One of the busiest trails I've ever hiked, but the history is interesting. The hotel must have been gorgeous before it burned down.

StartingOverClimbed morning of March 21, 2015  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 21, 2015


Not exactly a true wilderness experience, with traffic approaching 5, 10, or 101 status and occasional power lines, but still truly beautiful, and almost sublime with the fog covering the San Gabriel Valley.

IgooooorUnintended Altadena Ridge scramble!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2012


Did this one in 2012 with my fiancé and now wife. From Rubbio Canyon TH we took a wrong turn and scrambled up Altadena Ridge which made it exciting. Took the regular trail back down. Great to read up on the history of the area and see what remain today. Date is approximate.

Good introductory trail. Lots of traffic on it, and it's difficult to get lost on it.

royanderson1st Hour  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 24, 2012


The trail up to this mountain is usually crowded with many people, including runners and dogs, because it is so easy. Better to keep going up to Lowe. Made it here in an hour. Kept going up to Lowe. Been here several times.

telemarkdudeQuick and easy after work hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2013


This hike was just a few miles away while on business in CA so I took a quick run up at the end of the day. Sky was hazy, making it was hard to really see far.

mattcavgreat training hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2008


I hiked Echo Mountain for the first time in Sept/08. As my first peak ever bagged, I can say the view was stunning and the top was enthralling to reach. Having hikes Echo at least 50 more times since then, I can still say that this is a fun, challenging, and enjoyable hike that leads to longer hikes if you want to go past (e.g. Mount Lowe, Inspiration Point, Markham, Disappointment, San Gabriel, Muir). It's about 2.6 miles up and 2.6 down the same way with a consistent but not overbearing incline. The hardest part is the first mile.

Took the Sam Merrill trail to Echo then the long way to Inspiration Point(Echo Mtn trail to Mt. Lowe Road). Did Muir Peak before heading down the Castle Canyon trail back to Echo Mountain. Lots of folks on the trail! Got stung by a bee on my ear!
