View at JCT Lower Sam Merril Trail looking back down Lower Sam Merrill Trail.  Left leads down Lower Sam Merrill Trail, right follows the Lower Mt. Lowe Railway Trail to the Cape of Good Hope.

View looking straight (instead of the back as shown above) at arrival to the junction from the Lower Sam Merrill Trail.  If going to Echo Mountain White City ruins continue straight until you reach them.  Along the way you will pass junctions for the Middle Sam Merrill Trail and the Castle Canyon Trail.
