"This was a great hike to 4 different peaks. Each trail to the peaks were different as well. Gabriel peak was a nice single track with amazing views. Mt. Disappointment was a paved maintenance road with nice views as well. Walk back down to the main trail and take the Mt. Lowe trail (not the fire road) up to the Lowe summit. It’s very special with amazing views. The trail is pretty easy as it’s a wide trail and plenty of shade. Go back down the same way to reach the trail to Mt. Markham. This trail is technical and fun. Wear pants for this one because of the Spanish daggers and other sticker bu" - rickb, Jan 5, 2018
"Started about 1:30pm on Sunday, March 26, 2017 and the entire summit was shrouded in clouds. Unfortunately there were no views to be had today. As usual, couldn't find the summit register. Poodle dog bush seemed to be dying off after a cold, wet winter." - laphil, Mar 26, 2017
"Stop 3. Climb up from the Lowe-Markham saddle was fun. Strangely flat summit ridge. Good views of a snowy Baldy and other high peaks. Basin started to become hazy at this point." - edg, Feb 6, 2016
"We climbed up from Eaton saddle in the light of the super moon. We made it to the summit in time to watch the full moon set over the ocean behind Los Angeles. We took our summit shots as the sun rose behind Mt. baldy. This was all of our 1st times up here and was peak #55 of my 100 in 2014 goal." - 1-with-Nature, Aug 10, 2014
"This was the second summit of a 3-peak day with the HPS group: Lowe, Markham and San Gabriel. Spectacular views today! Even though there were a few clouds in the sky, we could see Baldy, San Gorgonio and San Jacinto to the east, cargo ships in the water off Long Beach to the south, the ocean to the west and downtown L.A. seemingly at our fingertips." - HikerMark, Mar 9, 2014
