IronHikerNo pack  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 13, 2014


Was more exciting than it should have been because I left my backpack at home. Left the car with two bottles of water. It was enough.

After hiking the Sam Merrill trail to Echo Mountain, continued up the Castle Canyon trail to Muir Peak. Rain started just below the summit and continued for the next 1.5 hours. After Muir Peak, continued to Brown Mountain.

Tagged Muir after taking the Sam Merrill Trail and Mt. Lowe Rd to Inspiration Point. A few tricky spots with the snow, but nothing serious. Rewarding views from the summit.

Planned on doing Echo Mountain and Inspiration Point. Hiked up the road from Inspiration Point and ran into a use trail and a sign indicating Muir Peak. Best view of the day from Muir Peak.

Date Climbed: Feb 5, 2011


Nice Saturday morning tagging Echo and then on up to Inspiration Point. Headed east along the fire road about 100 yards and then followed the use trail to the top of the south ridge following it east up and down about a half mile to summit of Muir. Very Nice views there and along the way.

Nice views, trail a bit overgrown. Summited as part of the Echo, Inspiration Point, Muir triplet. Heading up the trail from Inspiration, the turnoff is easy to miss on the right hand side.

Sanchez350Never again on this route...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 2, 2009


I climbed Muir once before via Echo Mountain, Castle Canyon, etc., but out of boredom I decided to climb it via the south face, the most primitive of routes. Nothing but animal trails through painful and crowding bushes and about 3500' gain in 2 miles. Started at a small clearing from the Altadena Crest trail. If you don't mind a LOT of bushwhacking and some borderline class 3 near the top, go right ahead.

Climbed up Echo Mountain from Rubio Canyon and continued to Inspiration Point via Castle Canyon. Hiked to Muir Peak and returned to Inspiration Point on the ridge leading west from Muir Point. Continued up Inspiration Peak before returning down Castle Canyon and Lower Sam Merril.

Travis_whoops, wrong peak
Date Climbed: Mar 2, 2008


I hiked up from Lake Ave to tag Muir, Inspiration and Mount Lowe, however it now looks like I climbed the wrong peak for Muir, I climbed peak 4668 ft not peak 4688 ft. duh!

Here is my route and some other stuff:

Combined it with Inspiration Peak for a 3.5 hour hike-jog to burn off the turkey. Was surprised to actually see a designated trail.

Have visited Muir Peak a number of times, usually on a trail run from Lake Ave. I'm very partial to the Castle Canyon Trail.
