Amazing views from the very first steps. We initially missed the first left turn trailhead to Mt Lowe summit by continuing on Mt Lowe Motorway. That was our extra 2 miles RT added on to the 17 miles. At the Idlehour Trail Camp there is a stream with cold refreshing water to cool down & drink (with filter). We stopped here on way out & way back. Much of the hike is shaded which is a plus. Encountered an irritated Rattlesnake on way back so beware & be careful.
