Echo Mountain Hike in Altadena

Time: 10:00am - 2:00pm
Place: Sam Merrill Trailhead in Altadena
3399 N. Lake Avenue, Altadena, CA 91001
Cost: Free for Everyone

Echo Mountain is one of the few moderate-difficulty hikes in L.A. that delivers the same sort of spectacular views found on hikes with super-challenging difficulty levels. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Mt. San Jacinto in San Bernadino to the east, and all the way to Catalina Island to the southwest!

Site of Thaddeus Lowe's famous mountain railroad hotel at the turn of the 19th century. Sadly, the resort burned down in the early 1900s, but the remnants of the hotel and cog railroad make for an excellent perch to take in the view of L.A. County today!

DIFFICULTY: 6 miles round-trip. 1400 feet of elevation gain. Moderate for experienced hikers; challenging for beginning hikers.

DOGS: Dogs are permitted on this trail.

KIDS:  As always, kids of all ages are welcome if they are up for the physical challenge described above, or you are ready/willing/able to carry them.  

TIME TO FIND PARKING:  Budget about 15 minutes.  There is ample unrestricted street-parking available near the trailhead, however this is a popular hike on the weekends.  

CAR-POOLING:  If you are interested in potentially car-pooling with others to this event, click here to either offer rides in your car or accept rides that have been offered.  Car pool option not guaranteed.

RSVP REQUIRED: October 28th

Join DCLA and NAAAD for a one hour docent guided tour of the California Continued galleries of the Autry Museum. The Autry Museum is truly one of LA's treasures and if you haven't been, yet, come out and discover it!

"The most transformative project in the Autry's nearly 30-year history! Through immersive storytelling and nearly 20,000 square feet of gallery and garden spaces, California Continued shares how traditional ecological knowledge gained through centuries of experience can help present-day residents understand and care for the California environment. Two new exhibition galleries present extraordinary art, artifacts, and personal ephemera, including many objects from the Southwest Museum of the American Indian Collection on view for the very first time! Beyond the galleries, a new ethnobotanical garden features more than 60 Native plants and activities that explore how generations of peoples, especially First Californians, have made use of plants and water. Connecting and complementing each of the experiences, a dual-screen projection room reveals landscapes and close-ups across California, from deserts to the coasts." 

Additionally, an exhibition of The Life and Work of Mabel McKay is on display.

"Explore the Autry’s first-ever solo show dedicated to a Native American woman’s life and work. Mabel McKay (1907–1993), a Long Valley Cache Creek Pomo woman from Northern California, represents a fascinating modern figure who maintained traditional ways. McKay is celebrated as a master basket weaver, traditional healer, advocate for her community and the environment, and teacher who shared her knowledge of Pomo traditions worldwide."

"Autry's vision takes and great leap forward . . .[with] hundreds of Native American works, some from present day, others centuries old, many never seen publicly."

RSVP REQUIRED: November 3rd

Please RSVP by November 3rd to aid with planning. We will be purchasing tickets with the Autry directly and will be limited to 15 guests for this tour so a wait list will open up once we've reached 15 RSVP's.

After graduating, Michael immediately moved to Los Angeles and released his first EP, “In the Beginning”, in 2013. Within 24 hours of its official release, “In the Beginning” jumped to the top 5 on the iTunes R&B charts, and remained the best-selling EP in Northern New England for that entire year. In 2015, Michael appeared in the major motion picture, Pitch Perfect 2, as the lead singer of the singing group in the film, The Singboks, soloing on the song “Anywhere You Want It”. He was also featured on the soundtrack, which won an American Music Award for best soundtrack. Both the film and soundtrack were #1 in May of 2015. Michael has performed all over the world, including sold-out shows at Merrill Auditorium, The Lincoln Center, and in 2011, sang for President Obama at the White House. 

A powerhouse performer in his right, Michael aims to expand his reach, both in content and in form, creating a unique entertainment experience that brings people together through the power of his music and entertainment. Michael’s canvas is a stage, and he aims to paint the image that, “as people, we are more alike than we are different”.
