We like driving through national forests when we have the opportunity. We drove up into the Angeles National Forest on two occasions while we were staying in Rancho Cucamonga. Both times, we had to turn around at one or more points due to road closures, possibly because of recent fires and current fire dangers. Both the Morris Reservoir and San... More

This is an incredible hike, and much less crowded than Mt. Baldy. It's about 4 miles straight up, and the air is thinner than in LA, so it's a good workout. The views at the top make it entirely worth it, they are spectacular. And the great thing is that it's really close to LA and the OC. One of... More

My only complaint is the wilderness is too near the city. The broken bottles and baby diapers litter the ground and visitors cannot use the trash cans. That is why I seek out the back country. The trails are well maintained and the scenery is awesome. Hike the Mount wilson trail or ir you are adventuresome hike the San Gabriel... More

This was a great drive. If you have driven on the 1 this is nothing. This drive was nice and relaxing. We brought our lunch and ate it at a camp site. Weather was great we drove from la Canada to Wrightwood. I will drive this again.

There's no way you can really see all of it at once. First you must consider the season you decide to pay the park a visit and then each time you go it is different. So you gotta program at least 4 visits a year to enjoy each season and at the same time try camping so that you may... More

If you don't mind curvy roads, there is great scenery for a drive. Lots of hiking trails, a ton of bikers, and the views are breathtaking. Depending on the time of year, you can really feel a million miles away from LA's bustle. And it's just a 20 - 30 minute drive from the city. Once you get off the... More

We hiked Switzer in October 2014. It was no water in the falls due to the dry season, but still a beautiful hike. If you go up, the view is breathtaking.
