Details: Day hike to Inspiration Point and back. This 10-mile loop is a classic trek up the Lower and Middle Sam Merrill Trails which leads hikers up the steep slopes south-facing foothills into the cool, wooded forest overlooking our own Grand Canyon of the San Gabriels. Once on the north slope, a short traverse through shaded oaks and conifers leads to the historic Inspiration Point. On a clear day, you can look through 100-year old viewing tubes locating popular destinations in Southern California. Click on "Read More" for more information and sign ups...
