Very steep going up. The most beautiful views awaited us!!! Descending, we tookanother route.
Not exactly the heart of the wild, but views were nice enough.
Peak 4 of 7 in the Mt Wilson area. Just like Markham & San Gabriel, couldn't find a summit register. Really nice views!
It doesn't take that much more effort to get there from San Gabriel Peak...don't be lazy...plus there's a cool helipad!
with San Gabriel, Markham, Lowe. Third tag, twice from Eaton Saddle, once from Disappointment Road.
Hike this one with the extended family. Very mellow pace on the fire road that seems to meander more than it needs. Great view from the top.
Did this one after Markham, Lowe, and San Gabriel...in the fog.
Very nice little hike.
Trail 2N52 to the top at 6:30am was casual, cool walk up 1200 feet to the Disappointment. Added with a summit of Mount Markham, Mount Lowe and San Gabriel Peak in that order gave me a 12 mile, 3,350 feet of elevation, excellent hike.
Did this with my children as pleasant outing; also did Deception and San Gabriel
I've gone to Mt D. two ways:
My first ascent was to combine it with Mt Lowe, Echo, Inspiration Point, and San Gabriel as a long day hike from the top of Lake Ave. I think that one ended up being 25+ miles total and while it was beautiful it was long.
I've also done this mountain from the small parking area with the gate just past Red Box. There's a steep single track trail from here but I have always decided to take the paved road and to make it a trail jog. It's only a few miles up this one way and its best to combine this with an ascent of its neighbor, San Gabriel. Just be careful of the poodle dog up there!
Started from Red Box & bagged summits along Mt. Wilson Toll Road. This was first.
Bagged along with San Gabriel Peak
With San Gabriel Pk, Mt. Deception, Mt. Markham and Mt. Lowe. Not much to say about the summit.
After San Gabriel, Markham, and Lowe. Easy road hike to the top with some nice views. Hiked over to Deception afterwards.
lawlor and about 4 others that day....
Just trying to beef up the peak list.
Nice little rocky outcropping with awesome views just south of the radio towers, extremely easy hike (the last part is just a road), peak 1 of 2 for the day.
4 peak day up from Millard Canyon: Mt. Lowe, Mt. Markham, Mt. Disappointment, and San Gabriel Peak. Recently opened after the Station Fire.
