Don't like hiking on fire roads and that's what this is for first 3 miles up. Total hike from start at Mt.Lowe Railroad loop was 12 miles. Very little to no shade the whole way. Inspiration Point is great as well as the history of the railroad from the 1920's.

We started from Mt. Lowe and headed to Inspiration Point. It's only a little over 3 miles to get there. The trail is very rocky but easy. They have signs to make sure you are on the right trail. There's several trail options along the way. If you can take a bug net to put over your head/hat. There's so many of them, you can't even talk without them trying to go in your mouth. NO SHADE! Go early.

We didn't look at the map and ended up go to the peak of mount Lowe and then continued to inspiration point. Because of not staying on the main road, I enjoyed it a lot. If I would have gone straight to inspiration point it would have been just ok.
