The hike up to Echo Mountain is strenuous and crowded on weekends. There isn't much shade on the hike or good rocks/stumps to sit and rest. What it does have, however, is a destination that contains some great history and views. Once on Echo Mountain, there are plenty of interpretive signs outlining the history of the railway that carried the well-to-do to the peak for a vacation in a Swiss style chalet during the late 1800s. There are ruins of the buildings and old run down train equipment left over from its glory days. There is even an "echo-phone" where one can experience the mountain's namesake.
This hike can get really crowded on weekends, but the payoff just might be worth it.
