The view of southern California, beautiful from the summit of the peak itself, shows its most features during the ride of the incline railway. At the terminal of the incline, the tourists will board the red cars of the mountain, railway, and from that time until they reach the peak will find no stretch of track or trail which stretches for more than 100 yards without a curve.
