Inspiration Point Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If you want to visit the site of the Echo Mountain House (Hike 74) but want an additional, tougher loop hike with even more history, well, you’re my kind of hiker.

This trip follows the Castle Canyon and Sam Merrill trails above the White City to the sites of the old Mount Lowe Observatory and a series of lovingly reconstructed viewing tubes at Inspiration Point."

"This trip rambles down to Inspiration Point the back way—via Mount Lowe. It’s a down-and-up route, so save most of your energy for the trip back. On the way down and later back, you’ll have a chance to use both the east and west trails on the slopes of Mount Lowe." Read more
