A pleasant drive for nature lovers, with lots of turnovers to stop, breathe the fresh mountain air, and indulge the senses. Also tops on the bucket lists of driving enthusiasts with a craving for twisties and hairpin loops.

Quick and easy access to snow play areas, hiking, camping, or just a drive through the forest-lined windy roads up to Mt. Wilson for a peak at all of LA - all the way to Catalina and then some. Not bad for a $5 pass!

A windy drive from the base to the top is worth the visit for a few breathtaking vistas. There is parking and hiking trails at the top. Drive carefully. Open from 6am to 8pm only.

We go here several times a year just to get out of the city and commune with nature. We bring food for a picnic and goodies for the birds and squirrels. Theres 2 campgrounds, Chilao and Buckhorn, Buckhorn is our fave. Its 6000 ft with the big trees, a small stream with a small 10 waterfall. A very beautiful setting.... More

I loved hiking in the forest as well as camping in some of its lovely forested sites. I have enjoyed the vistas and seeing them in the distance on a clear day. This is worth a trip also.

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.
