Despite being just a short drive from the big city life of L.A., you can still feel in the heart of the wilderness at Mt. Lowe Trail Camp. Campsites are hike-in, first-come, first-served, and primitive—perfect for a last minute jaunt into the forest. You’ll leave recharged, refreshed, and ready to tackle big city livin’.

Drop some Mt. Lowe Trail Camp knowledge on us.
I visited in mid-July. The camp is very secluded and has great potential, but unfortunately there were a ton of fire ants which bit my dog a few times. There were also a ton of flies all day. The nearby creek was completely dry. I would avoid Mt. Lowe Trail camp until fall or early winter.
