Echo Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"Wander through the foothills above Altadena to historic Echo Mountain. Take in clear sky views and visit markers and relics from earlier times. The summit of Echo Mountain lords over the Altadena skyline. Once home to the historic Mount Lowe Railway and the White City Resort, the trek to the top of Echo Mountain is now solely a pedestrian venture best suited for the cool days of winter when skies are azure and the temperature is cool. Mostly sun exposed, the route is best to be avoided during the heat of the day, and hiking during summertime other than near dawn or dusk is folly due to temperatures and smog."
