Echo Mountain sunset/moonrise picnic/dinner hike

  • January 31, 2014 · 4:00 PM

Echo mountain is a popular, yet still strenuous hike from the Cobb Estate in Altadena to the ruins of the Mt. Lowe railway. This is a great hike to do at night, as its fire road (albeit a narrow fire road), and you will have both the city lights and natures lights guiding your way).  I know the time might be a little early for some, but I wanted to start when there is still light. 

The top has plenty of space to sprawl out and eat our food. The whole hike is officially 5 miles round trip, 2.5 miles each way. This is not what I would call a "first time ever hiking" hike. Its similarly strenuous as the hikes to Mt. Lee or Mt. Hollywood but a little longer.

 The first time I went here was with Ranger. Please bring: a liter of water, FLASHLIGHT/HEADLAMP, basic first aid, charged phone, a layer for when the sun goes down, and food/dinner for on top (This is not a potluck per se, but feel free to share).

We will be taking off 10 minutes after 4, and should be back down around 7:15. (including staying up there for 1/2 hr-45 minutes to eat and socialize). There will be plenty of parking on Lake and Loma Alta roads.

    Hi all, hope everyone had an enjoyable hike. Although the change in weather is nice, hopefully the weather will be slightly warmer so we can all chill and hang out up there.

    Can't make this date; but PLEASE include me the next time you do this Friday night hike. Sounds great. A full moon would be the best. Have fun.

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.
