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!

This is a WONDERFUL drive that goes all the way to the town of Wrightwood, CA. We went in the summer, so it wasn't like all the snow covered pictures you see, but it was still stunning and worth the drive any time of year!...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.

Traveled on Angeles Crest Highway on a Saturday afternoon. Started in La Canada Flintridge, to the west. I thought there was only one highway through the mountains. However, my GPS took me onto Angeles Forest Highway towards Palmdale. Had to double back. Make sure you...More
