The 66 mile drive from La Cañada Flintridge to Wrightwood is nothing less than spectacular, winding its way back and forth, up and down, through the San Gabriel Mountains. There are scenic stops everywhere, and plenty of places to park, picnic, hike and camp. Highlights...More

Escape the city and drive this road. It is a driver's road hands down. Amazing turns. Incredible views. Watch out for fallen rocks...they are real!

IF YOU HAVE A LOWERED CAR, DON'T DRIVE THIS OR TURN AROUND WHEN YOU SEE SNOW. When you start seeing snow, there are generally relatively large rocks on the road. Luckily my lancer GTS isn't dropped and has a relatively high stock height so I...More

This was a great, scenic drive. About thirteen years ago, I drove the entire length westbound, from Mountain top Junction at the 138 to La Canada Flintridge, California at the intersection with Foothill Boulevard. There is plenty of scenery all around.
