This past weekend my friend and I went hiking to the hotel ruins in Echo Mountain! This hike is easy with many switchbacks, but if you make a slight left instead of following the signs ( like I did last time I went to Echo) you will be going straight uphill in the blistering sun until you reach the top only to realize the hotel ruins are on the other side. Watch out for that.
THIS time I actually made it to the ruins. I recommend starting your hike early, or nearing sunset. It gets hot out there, folks!
Here are some quick pics of what’s left of the once glorious hotel in the late 1800s.
The view, as usual, is beautiful in Pasadena, CA-so bring lots of water( maybe a picnic) and enjoy the sights and History at Echo Mountain!
