Inspiration Point via Castle Canyon is a 9.4 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail established near Altadena, California.
I went there last Saturday with my friends to enjoy the hike. It was probably the longest hike ever. It took a total of 6 hours to complete, including the breaks in between.
First, we started at Cobb Estate, where street parking is available. Then, we got a bit lost and took the wrong path. But a nice lady showed us the right way to Echo Mountain, which is the halfway mark.
We took a break at Echo Mountain to enjoy the scenery. Their historical site on the way up at echo makes up the surrounding area so beautiful.
Then, we moved towards the final stretch to Inspiration Point via Castle Canyon, which was 2.5 miles from Echo Mountain. The Castle Canyon trail has more inclination with an increasingly narrow path. These narrow paths were so challenging for us.
This hike was so tiring that we felt so much happiness when the Inspiration Point was in our sight.
At that time, we all were so happy about reaching the destination that we couldn't tell.
The views at Inspiration Point are breathtaking! We also enjoyed seeing the Los Angeles skyline from here. This long hike burned me out.
I was so glad at that moment when it was finally over, and we returned to Cobb Estate. We also took snacks and water bottles with us during this hike.
We had a great experience here. It was a fun day hike to go on with friends!
