Fun trail to the top!  Sucess!

This is a fun peak and the trail has just the right amount of obstacles to make it challenging.

Markham and Lowe from Eaton Saddle  Sucess!

Climbed from Eaton Saddle on the morning of July 5, 2015. The use trail from the saddle between Lowe and Markham was steep in places but nothing that difficult. I used my hands maybe 3-5 times. Gorgeous day with fog covering the valleys below but crystal clear skies in the front range with great views and warm but not too hot.

Easygoing hike with Mt. Lowe  Sucess!

We hiked up the W ridge after climbing Mt. Lowe. Beautiful cloudy views on top, then scrambled straight down the N slope to the tank at the trail junction.

Four Peaks  Sucess!

The highlight of the day. After a walk up Mount Disappointment, the scramble up Mount Markham was fun. Rustled a deer out of the brush on top, he headed down into Bear Canyon. Also noticed the emergency ham radio outfit with a crude antenna. After Markham I topped Mount Lowe then San Gabriel Peak creating a nice 12 mile day.

Great Tourist Mountain  Sucess!

Easy, quick climb from the Mt. Wilson Road. Great place to take out-of-towners for a look at the LA Basin

a fine summit  Sucess!

I once hiked over from Eaton Saddle a long time ago and I really thought Mt Markham was a great peak. The rocky profile and the short scramble to the top made it a very worthy peak.
