The Mount Lowe Volunteers (aka The Scenic Mount Lowe Railway Historical Committee) formed in 1992 with the expressed desire to preserve the remnants of the Mount Lowe Railway, including its structures and numerous artifacts. Under the authority of the Angeles National Forest, we work alongside countless volunteers who dedicate themselves in maintaining the rich historical significance of Mount Lowe.
Our projects have included rebuilding Inspiration Point, rebuilding Dawn Mine Station, maintaining trails/structures, installing signs and artifacts throughout Mount Lowe and much more.
It is our endeavor to preserve what is left of this famous attraction and share it with the world.
