The course also features some challenging water traps. Additional features of the course include an impressive three-story driving range for those who like a real challenge.

Snaking along the site of the historical Mt Lowe Railway, this is one of the more scenic hikes in the outer Angeles Forest. This trail takes you on a full-day rigorous adventure, spanning 11 miles and ascending 2600 feet, mostly along a rugged road. You will pass thick forests and deep canyons and likely enjoy a few deer sightings. The hike offers many stunning vistas, as well as a few attractive shaded picnicking spots. An occasional info plaque gives insights into the fascinating history of the place. The loop culminates at the lofty Inspiration Point, where panoramic views reach as far as the ocean on a clear day. The trail is low on shade so arm yourself with a hat and plenty of water. Note that you will need to purchase a Day or Annual Pass from the ranger station or a Big 5 in order to park at the designated lot. - Jamie Zum
