"Knowing that A) I had the next day off, B) I had a mentally stressful day at work, and C) I hadn't hiked in 3 weeks, I broke the streak with a short hike (and a mental recharge!) in the San Gabriel Mountains Front Range. Fighting traffic on the 605 and 210 after leaving work in north OC was bad. I left work shortly after 2pm and didn't reach the trail until 3:45pm! I parked at Eaton Saddle on Mt. Wilson Rd. My goal was to summit Mt. Lowe and consider Markham as a potential extra summit climb. The hike to Mt. Lowe was easy and relaxing, and the at times foggy air kept me cool.

"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.

"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
