TheGoatDon't Eat Donuts While Hiking  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 19, 2009

Good hike through nice chaparral with a good friend. The title is self-explanatory, that wasn't too much fun. It's also scary parking on a steep hill in a manual you are just learning how to drive. Decently clear day for California.

IgooooorSummer solstice day hike from Rubio  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2014

Igooooor

We had our eye on a peak around here ever since reaching Inspiration Point on a previous hike. This time the opportunity came on a summer solstice. We started at the Rubio Canyon TH at 6am. We were at Echo Mountain by 7 then Inspiration Point via Castle Canyon Trail at 8 and the peak of Lowe via the East Trail by 9. It took the same mount of time to get down as we took slightly longer Sam Merrill Trail on the way down before descending back to Rubio Canyon. Back at the car by 12pm.


Would hate to do this one any later in the day or summer. It was hot on the way down.

Came up from Lake Street. Went up the East Trail. Had to dodge mountain bikers coming down. The view on top is nice. Also went on to Mt. Markham. Good, fast training hike, except for distance from Lake to Echo Mountain. Went with Mark J.

mattcavreally fun summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 4, 2009

I summited Lowe for the first time from Lake Ave/Echo Mountain in March of 09. I took the trail up to Echo, then upper Sam Merrill to East Lowe, then back down through Castle Canyon, for maybe a 13-14 miler. I think the time took 6 hours total, give or take.

Since then, I've taken different variations to get up to Lowe and while its always a fun and moderate hike, some of the west trail up to the top has been eroded from the Station Fire. Its doable but be careful if you get vertigo :-)

After San Gabriel and Markham. Nice views and kind of fun looking through the viewing tubes at the top. Something kind of different. Continued on to Disappointment and Deception.

Like the viewfinders, crystal clear views would be nice, but it was ok.
