This hike is hosted by Los Angeles 20s 30s section of the Sierra Club, www.sc2030.org.
Welcome to the new year - how's your 2013 ... ah does not matter anymore ... it's almost 2014 now (or it will be 2014 on our hike) ...
No matter if you're feeling 'lowe' or not, we need some 'inspiration' at some 'point' to face the new year.
So join me for an inspirational hike to Mt. Lowe. We will start our journey from Cobb's Estate pass the ruin of the White Mountain (a.k.a. Echo Mountain). After a 10-15 minutes break at the ruins, we will then take a steeper route up to Inspiration Point. We will take a quick picnic at this point to enjoy the scenery (you can also do a FB check-in here!!!). After the quick picture break, we will then continue our journey to the last 2 miles to Mt. Lowe where we can see 360 degree view of the San Gabriel mountain range.
Distance: 14 miles
Duration: 7-8 hours
Elevation gain/loss: 4000'
Please bring at least 3 liters of water, lunch and snack, and some money if you want to join us for late lunch after the hike.
Hiking boots with good traction and hiking poles will help.
So if you ready to leave the old year behind and face the new one, please join us.
Rain, snow, icy trail will cancel the hike. Also extreme hotness and fire breathing dragon.
