O: WTC INTRODUCTORY HIKE: Echo Mtn, Inspiration Point and Muir Peak (4688’)


Hike the Sam Merrill trail to the historic railway and resort area at Echo Mtn, then up Castle Canyon to Inspiration Point and on to Muir Peak. We will return by the Middle Merrill trail. Trip is a total of 12 miles with 2900 ft of gain. Leaders will provide an overview of the Wilderness Travel Course (WTC), which begins January ’13. Subjects include safe mountain travel, map & compass and wilderness first aid. Meet 9:00 am at the North end of Lake Street at the corner of Lake and Loma Alta Street in Alta Dena by the “Gate”. This is a residential neighborhood so be mindful of parking regulations and resident’s quiet enjoyment of their neighborhood. Bring 2-3 liters of water, lunch, lugsoles, hat and layered clothing. 


This Hike is cosponsored by the Angeles Chapter Sierra Club-Sign in sheet and waiver will be required and available at the trailhead.

    Always a pretty loop, but fog and haze wrecked our views. I'll be glad when the poodledog bush along the Sam Merrill Trail finally gets crowded out!

    A very important question...Any restroom is available on the trail for the long hike? (Sorry to post this question about it)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
