"A Little Echo...Echo...Echo"

Echo Canyon can barely be called a neighborhood. Rather, it is just a handful of streets stretching out over the edge of canyon. These narrow streets trickle down towards Mountain View Cemetery hiding beautiful homes whose styles are barely discernable from behind their woody, hilly fronts. This is definitely a beautiful secluded area but it really should just be thought of as a pocket of Central Piedmont.

That said, one of the distinctions of the neighborhood is the presence of beautiful metal street lamps, with glass birdcage like heads—a very satisfying effect, especially in this affluent, woody neighborhood.
Pros
  • Very, Very Woodsy
  • Cool Lamp Posts
  • Beautiful Homes
Cons
  • Narrow, Winding Streets
  • Expensive
  • Wildfires and Erosion
