On top of Echo Mountain are the ruins of “White City,” a resort along the scenic Mount Lowe Railway, which could easily be seen from the valley below. White City was the site of a magnificent 70-room Victorian hotel, the Echo Mountain House. Only a few hundred feet away stood the 40-room Echo Chalet. The complement of buildings on Echo included an astronomical observatory, car barns, dormitories and repair facilities, a casino and dance hall, and a menagerie of local fauna. For the seven years during which Lowe owned and operated the railway, it constantly ran into hard times.

Wildflowers are in bloom.

Please keep your RSVP current so that we don’t wait for you at the gate.

Bring a snack or beverage to share. We will pack out what we pack in.
