To be such a short route, the Echo Mountain/Sam Merrill loop really packs a technical and aerobic punch. With the perfect blend of scenery, vigorous climbing, vertigo-inspiring cliffs, and challenging switchbacks, this may be the perfect after-work ride because it can be finished in less than two hours. If it does become part of your post-clock-out regimen, don’t ever lose respect for the danger that this trail presents—complacency can cause severe injuries and even death on the Lower Sam Merrill Trail.
