Echo Mountain is one of the few moderate-difficulty hikes in L.A. that delivers the same sort of spectacular views found on hikes with super-challenging difficulty levels. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Mt. San Jacinto in San Bernadino to the east, and all the way to Catalina Island to the southwest!

Site of Thaddeus Lowe's famous mountain railroad hotel at the turn of the 19th century. Sadly, the resort burned down in the early 1900s, but the remnants of the hotel and cog railroad make for an excellent perch to take in the view of L.A. County today!

DIFFICULTY: 6 miles round-trip. 1400 feet of elevation gain. Moderate for experienced hikers; challenging for beginning hikers.

DOGS: Dogs are permitted on this trail.

KIDS:  As always, kids of all ages are welcome if they are up for the physical challenge described above, or you are ready/willing/able to carry them.  

TIME TO FIND PARKING:  Budget about 15 minutes.  There is ample unrestricted street-parking available near the trailhead, however this is a popular hike on the weekends.  

CAR-POOLING:  If you are interested in potentially car-pooling with others to this event, click here to either offer rides in your car or accept rides that have been offered.  Car pool option not guaranteed.  https://www.groupcarpool.com/t/v4tg05
