Echo Mountain in Altadena, Ca

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when I like to clear my mind, I love checking out the Mount Lowe Railway in Altadena, Ca. It's essentially this 2 1/2 mile hike up about 3,000 feet and the view is utterly breathtaking. So worth it! 

The Mount Loew Railway was the first ever electric railway in SoCal. Clearly only the elite would have afforded to use It. Once at the top, there was a large hotel overlooking the city. From 1884 to 1900, the lodge was a popular spot. A fire in 1900 caused the lodge to burn down and nothing has come of it since. You can still see the ruins and some of the old train cars. I highly recommend this spot!
