Easy hike with a great view of my favorite city.
Pretty easy hike from the north up the San Gabriel Peak trail, unbelievable views over the city. Would like to go back up at night and in the winter. Peak 2 of 3 for the day.
4 peak day up from Millard Canyon: Mt. Lowe, Mt. Markham, Mt. Disappointment, and San Gabriel Peak.
I hiked up at night with my friend Hartley. Great views of the city!
From Red box bagged San Gabriel Peak, Mount Disappointment, Mount Markham & this one. A nice loop on Saturday morning. The historical markers are worth a read.
Combo with San Gabriel Peak. Cool historical peak.
Like the viewfinders, crystal clear views would be nice, but it was ok.
Echo first, then up Castle Canyon, Muir and Inspiration Peaks, then the Lowe loop trail.
this was the first backpacking trip of my life
It would be nice to do this hike again on a cool day....I remember it being quite hot years ago. Too hot for the dainty flower I am..lol
Always a nice hike.
First hike to start my Whitney training for the year. Nice easy stroll on a crystal clear day.
Miguel Carmona and I hiked up this hill many a time as a part of our training for bigger mountains. Armed with 50 lbs of water in our packs, we would hike as fast as we could up the hill, empty the water containers on the summit and run down. It was a bit unortodox way to train, but very effective.

The clearest day I've ever seen... You could see to the ocean... Excellent day to be out...
Normally I don't, but I liked all the stuff on top of this peak, with the viewfinders, etc.
A big semi-loop: up to Inspiration Point via Castle Canyon, then up the East trail, down the West trail, and down the Sam Merril trail
From Cobb Estate TH: hit Echo Mtn, Muir Pk, Inspiration Pk, Mt Markham and Mt Lowe. Hiked with Gordon, Coco the Dog, and Sophie the Dog on a very hot April day. Up Castle Canyon/East Lowe trails and down the Mt Lowe railline/West Lowe trails.
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 climed peak 4668 ft not peak 4688 ft. duh! I recommend taking a different trail down Mnt. Lowe, they both lead out near the same location.
Here is my route and some other stuff:
