Echo Mountain and Inspiration Point

Let's hike up to Echo Mountain and Inspiration Point! We'll work up a sweat, as most of the trail is a gradual uphill. You'll experience scenic views of the San Gabriel Mountains and valley, and also see some cool remnants of a mid-century railway and resort. You can also test out your vocal skills on the old "Echo Phone."

As with all hikes/events, please observe the group rules and guidelines, which are located in the main menu under "Pages".

HIKE DETAILS
– Total distance: 10.4mi
– Elevation gain: 2,740ft
– Time: ~5hrs
– Difficulty: Moderate–Strenuous
– Bring snacks/lunch, at least two liters of water, sun protection

    It looks like this weekend isn't going to work out for me, which means there's a spot open for anyone waiting. Hopefully, I can catch you guys on a hike in February. Have fun!

    I'm coming from Irvine - I'd be very interested in a carpool if one is available. Thanks!

      Hi Anna, there are a couple of other hikers who are coming from the OC, so you should be able to hook up with them for carpooling.

      I'm in Long Beach. And would like to carpool if possible, I can either drive or be passenger.

    Anna & Diane, I coming from Santa Ana/Costa Mesa I don't mind to carpool at all.

    Looks like the flu season is going to keep me in bed tomorrow. Enjoy the hike and I look forward to meeting you all on another hike in the near future!

      I'm waitlisted. I guess I'll have to wait until I get a spot.

    Hi, this is my very first meetup ever. I've never done a 10 mi hike so I don't really know what to expect but I want to try. At the same time, I don't want to slow anyone down. Can anyone help me out? And I don't mind carpooling as well :)
    Much appreciated!

      Hi David, as long as you feel that you are in decent physical shape you should be good with this hike. We will keep an eye out for you and not leave you behind, so no worries. You have to get your feet wet sometime.

      January 20, 2014

    • Serge K.

      David chi, from where are you trying to carpool? I will be coming from Irvine.

      January 21, 2014

  • Marcus

    I am coming from Ventura--near Santa Barbara. Is there anyone from here or points in between who wants to carpool?

      Awesome sauce, thought maybe you were too good for us but then I remembered how awesome the rest of us were and I took that thought right back and hogged it like a pixie stick. Glad to see you back on the trails.
