Echo Mountain

I’ve been wanting to hike the Mt. Lowe trail ever since I first heard about the ruins of the Echo Mountain House and the Mt. Lowe railway but hadn’t had a chance to get around to it until last week. Apparently Independence Day is one of the busier days on the trail as from up top you can see several different fireworks shows simulataneously.

YouTube user brotherBvideos put together a great comprehensive guide to the Echo Mountain and Mt. Lowe trails and what exactly the ruins are/were.

  1. Thanks for posting the Mt. Lowe/Echo Mountain trail entry. A good reminder I had it on my “Hikes To Do” list.
