Inspiration Pt. & Muir peak

BEFORE YOU WILL BE MOVED TO THE GOING LIST, YOU WILL NEED TO UPDATE YOUR CDH PROFILE (The three questions must be answered with a “yes”) IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO

Since we are living in the age of Covid, I am limiting this event to a max of 10 people due to social distancing.

THESE ARE THE RULES:
1. ONLY people I have been hiking with will be moved to the going list.
2. You must follow all safety guidelines regarding Covid. This means 6-ft social distancing, and wearing a mask.
3. We hike as a group and will not leave anyone behind.
4. Do not attend this hike if you have other plans.

A beautiful hike on April Fool’s Day that is definitely no joke! We will begin our trek at Eaton Saddle trailhead, walking along the Mt. Lowe Road and re-group at Markham Saddle. Then continue on the road above Bear canyon to Tom Sloan Saddle and take a short break at the junction. Our journey will continue with a gradual ascent on the TSS. On this trail we can appreciate the beautiful restoration made possible by Restoration Legacy Crew in 2018. We’ll take a connector trail and pass through some historic ruins including the Alpine Tavern. After checking out the sites contine our trek to Inspiration Point and Muir Pk. After summit pics, we will retrace our steps to IP for a lunch break under the nice shaded veranda. On a clear day Catalina Island can be seen. The return back to our cars will be a gradual incline on a fire road.

Last time I was here, there were small patches of poison oak along the Bear canyon trail but can easily be avoided since it is not directly on the trail.
