“A steady, steep climb up to the ruins of the Echo Mountain Resort.”

2.6 Miles Singletrack Type 1,396’ Ascent -1’ Descent 1,810’ Low 3,206’ High
Description
The Lower Sam Merrill trail is a steady climb with many tight switchbacks. It's best to climb this in the morning as the trail is West facing and there are very few trees for shade. At the top of the Lower Sam Merrill trail, you are rewarded by great views and some local history from the ruins of the old Echo Mountain Resort and Mt. Lowe Railway. Get out really early to avoid hikers on the weekend or break out the lights and ride it at night.
