Continue along trail to reach another flat area close by.TSS1301-005

There is another trail sign at the west end of the flat area that marks the continuation of the trail.TSS1301-006

A number of trails lead from Tom Sloan Saddle.  Take the trail with the trail marker going to Mt. Lowe Road as shown below.TSS1301-016

There is another trail that I found to be washed out and covered in poodle dog bush and turned back that looks like it also leads to Mt. Lowe Road but closer to Mt. Lowe Campground.  I don’t suggest taking that trail.  Here’s what that marker looks like to avoid confusion.TSS1301-017
