Lookout Mountain via the Pacific Crest Trail

Lookout Mountain via the Pacific Crest Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Hike a short distance to an isolated and rarely visited desert peak that offers great views on the way up and down. Springtime flowers are spectacular. There is a summit register on top where hikers can sign their names and philosophize or wax poetic. Popcorn flower and phacelia are common blooming species on the mountaintop during greener times. The summit itself is somewhat of a misnomer. The top is quite broad, flat, and full of shrubs. There are views, however. Sunrises and sunsets can be absolutely magical high above the desert, but the vistas are actually better along the way up and down."
