  • Hiking Fresno Canyon - off Green River in Corona

    Green River Promenade

    Fresno Canyon Trail After learning that Fresno Canyon is actually City of Corona property, we did some exploring. It is a well-kept trail that leads from Green River up to the Cleveland National Forest. We worked with the City to get this officially designated as a trail and replaced the Private Property/No Trespassing signs with legit trail head signage! The hike is a more strenuous than the fire road at Skyline, but not too bad. If you go far enough up the trail (a few miles) it gets very steep and challenging. For our Monday conditioning hike we will hike for an hour, take a 10 minute break, and then return the way we came. Because it is steeper the distance will not be too great, but it will still be a nice workout. Due to the earlier sunsets it would be a good idea to bring a headlamp or flashlight. WHAT TO BRING: • Shoes with good traction • Water • Sunscreen • Light snack • Trekking Poles (if you use them) • FLASHLIGHT and/or HEADLAMP! AFTER THE HIKE: There is a little pizza place called Big Al's where we park, so after the hike we will grab a slice before heading home. This bit is optional, but it is always fun!

  • Let’s Hike Echo Mountain, Inspiration Point and San Gabriel Peak

    THIS IS AN ADVANCED/INTERMEDIATE LEVEL HIKE. THIS HIKE IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS. THERE WILL BE NO "PLUS ONES" ALLOWED TO ATTEND THIS HIKE. IF YOU HAVE SOMEONE THAT REALLY WANTS TO GO ON THIS HIKE, HAVE THAT PERSON SIGN UP SO HE/SHE CAN READ THE HIKE DESCRIPTION AND THE WAIVER OF LIABILITY. Please be in outstanding physical hiking condition to sign up for this hike. The meeting point is the trail head at the corner of Lake Avenue and East Loma Alta Drive. We will take Sam Merrill trail up to Echo Mountain. We will take a short break at Echo Mountain to take in the sights and read about the history plus visit the historic ruins of the "White City", where a mountain house hotel, chalet, observatory, dance hall and small zoo were once located. There are various plaques at Echo Mountain that tell the story of the White City. Then we hike Castle Canyon trail to Inspiration Point. This is a single track trail that is fairly level at the start until we reach a small creek. After the creek, the trail immediately starts climbing and switchbacks steeply. For much of the trail, you cannot see your destination, then suddenly, near the top, the trail takes a sharp right and we will be greeted with a view of Inspiration Point, just 200 yards up. I think this is why some call the top Inspiration Point, because just when you have had enough and are ready to turn around, you are "inspired" to complete the hike because you can finally see the top! :-) We will take a small break at Inspiration Point. The storied Pacific Electric Railway built an open air shelter here around[masked]. At the top of Inspiration Point are locating tubes that show the location of points of interest from nearby sites to Catalina Island. The pieces of pipe are oriented so the view through each pipe is centered on the point of interest From Inspiration Point we hike on the fire road for about 3/8ths of a mile. Look to your right for the Mt Lowe East Trail Sign. We then begin our ascent up towards San Gabriel Peak. The Mt. Lowe East Trail will lead us to the San Gabriel Trail sign. We make a left at the San Gabriel Trail sign and take it up to the peak. Here is an overhead video I took from Mt. Markham showing the route up to San Gabriel Peak from this point. It is at the 20 second mark of the video. (https://www.facebook.com/anthonytellez/videos/10154773214658130/) We will enjoy a well deserved break at the peak and take a group photo. We then will descend down San Gabriel Peak the route we took up. As we approach Inspiration Point we will take an alternate route back down to Echo Mountain. This is the Middle Sam Merrill Trail to Echo Mountain as you can see in the picture below. Note it is 3/8ths of a mile from Inspiration Point. This alternate route will provide great scenic view of Las Angeles for most of the 2 1/2 miles to Echo Mountain. About a mile down the Middle Sam Merrill Trail we will take a short break just past Sunset Point to take in an outstanding view of Los Angeles for a terrific photo opportunity. Take the short route to the tree just past Sunset Point for a breathtaking view of Los Angeles! Then return to Middle Sam Merrill Trail. Once we reach Echo Mountain it’s a hike down Sam Merrill trail from Echo Mountain back down to our cars. What to bring: At least 3 liters of water Sun hat Sunscreen Plenty of lunch/energy snacks Hiking poles are recommended Flashlight or Head Lamp Good hiking attitude Stats: Distance: 15 3/4 miles total Elevation: 6162 feet Elevation Gain: 5000 feet Difficulty: Intermediate/Advanced Hiking time: 9-10 hours Click Here to Print Map or All Trail Members Can Download Map (http://www.alltrails.com/explore/map/cobb-estate-to-echo-mountain-to-inspiration-point-to-mt-lowe) ** B J 'S RESTAURANT** We will be meeting at BJ'S Restaurant in Pasadena at the conclusion of the hike!
