Take a Hike!

Another great hike: Echo Mountain via Sam Merrill Trail in Altadena. At the top there are the remains, essentially just the foundation, of a turn of the century resort. "Echo Mountain House" was built in 1894 and burned completely in a fire just 6 years later. Only accessible by rail, the resort was truly one of a kind. Imagine all the time and manpower it took to build, to get all those materials up the mountain, and it was gone just like that...
