Park along the curb on either street or side street

This is the famed Mt. Lowe Railway Hotel location where Professor Thaddeus Lowe built the White City back in 1893. It started a 40 year tourist attraction where people came from all over the world to take the "Railway To The Clouds"

Bring food and libations

Distance: 5.2 miles round trip

Level: 5 / 10 Medium...not for beginners

Elevation: elevation gain 1400 ft.... continuous uphill trail.

No Dogs

Hike up the Sam Merrill Trail to Echo Mtn. (1.25 hours)

The Rose Bowl fireworks start at about 9 PM. Bring a sheet or a collapsible lawn chair / there are no seats.

For those who have never hiked to Echo Mtn. this trail is almost constantly uphill with little respite. You cannot get lost, so if anyone has trouble going up, you can always turn back.

It is a medium level hike, not a beginner hike. You may bring flashlights for the trip back down.

We will head back down at about 9:45 - 10 PM , and be back to cars by 10:30 or 11 PM -- however, anyone who elects to leave early, that is an option.
