“A mile-long trail that is the start of an interpretive run.”— John McKinney
Make sure you download or print off a free copy of the free e-book/brochure "Self Guided Hiking Tour of the Historic Mt. Lowe Pacific Electric Railway, Angeles National Forest" by the United States Forest Service! It will make your self-guided interpretive tour, much more enjoyable and informative.
The trail is fairly mellow and follows an easy grade over an old railroad bed for 0.9 miles. This trail is typically done in conjunction with other trails, especially Mt. Lowe Road #2N50.
