Note: Schad also describes hiking to San Gabriel Peak from Eaton Saddle. Route Instructions for that hike are here. Below are photo galleries (that differ from above) for this option.

Trip 6: Mt. Lowe

Trip 7: Bear Canyon. I haven’t documented all segments of this hike (though I’ve traversed all of them). See my post: Trail Conditions Along Upper Bear Canyon for more information.

Trip 11: Mt. Lowe Railway. See my post: Castle Canyon for more information about the Castle Canyon Trail portion of this trip.

Photos from hikes described in Chapter 22: Charlton-Chilao Recreation Area

Trip 2: Vetter Mountain The trail Schad describes was burned in the Station Fire of 2009. The above link provides the current route description.

Trip 4: Mt. Hillyer (I haven’t yet documental all segments of this trip). However, this trip gives route instructions to Mt. Hillyer without the described loop to Santa Clara Divide Road. Also, this trip is longer but more interesting (in my opinion anyway) than going the Santa Clara Divide route.
