The ride up Glendora Mountain Road (GMR) offers beautiful views of the local San Gabriel Mountains. On clear days, you can also get a spectacular sight of the San Gabriel Valley. My son and I drove up on a Saturday morning to hike the Northern portion of the Upper Monroe Truck Trail. The road is a twisting, winding, stomach-churning ride into the mountains. It can be a dangerous ride because you are sharing the narrow road with motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, and joggers, along with other motor vehicles. There are many turnouts for parking to enjoy the views or explore one of the many hiking trails. The road will continue to the East Fork of the San Gabriel River. It is currently closed to Mt. Baldy.

Glendora Mountain Road, or more commonly know as GMR by locals is a great escape from the grind of every day living. Great road for a scenic car drive or even better yet a motorcycle ride. And the hiking trails that are all along the roadway are a great way to spend a couple of hours decompressing and working up a little sweat. GMR is a quick mini vacation you can put yourself in from your doorstep with in a few minutes time, if you live local of coarse. From my desktop in my home office to deer grazing in minutes, the Great Escape!

If you are looking for a spectacular view, this place is worth the long drive. Make sure the bladders of your kids are empty because there are no restrooms up there. Also, don't let the kids wander away from you too far because there are wild animals in this area.

I ride my Harley and it's an awesome ride, I usually get there at 9am on a WEEKDAY, it's about an hour ride from the turn off from my baldy village , very little traffic at that time, I puts some pics up, I have seen deer on several occasions, it's a calm relaxed ride, very little traffic, it's a very close trip from my home in Alta Loma it clears my head and feels like I'm far away, its a quick close round trip , enjoy it and take care of it for all.... thanks

Only, go during the week... too many "speedsters" on the weekend. Lots of turnout to stop and admire the views .. and there is much to behold!
