Nice place to take a leisurely motorcycle or car ride. You have to be watchful of bike riders and horseback riders. But it is a full use area so those are things you have to put up with.

I've taken my kids and grandkids up the road and into the canyon for hikes. No facilities, so be prepared for that. In the evening, the view of the San Gabriel valley is awesome. The kids spent a good 15 minutes trying to pick out places they knew from the view. Finally found something that engaged them off of their devices and it was a short drive from my home in Covina

while there are scenic views to sides of this road that are cool, this Model A car size road is dangerous thanks to those individuals who become careless on what ever mode of transport they have, when i was working we drove large trucks here and have been tailgated, cut off, and near head ons while on this road, one individual on a skate board got run over recently . there has been countless over the side wrecks through the years, even suicides. i do not recommend this road for pleasure driving from my view as a 43 year professional driver. Arcadia park is more scenic with trees and lots easier to get to and safer drive.

If you like to hike there are many trails all around. My favorite is at the corner of glendora Mtn rd / dalton springs. Begin with “poop out” to “punk out” this is a considered difficult and a great work out. There are many others not as difficult. You can find maps at trail heads.

Middle of the road hike, great views, careful with rattlers during summer, easy grading, some shady areas while hiking, good place to take the family and dog.

This surely has to be one of the most stunning drives on the planet!! I came upon this road by total accident, I hadn't heard of it at all... This is maybe a good thing that it isn't hugely well known outside the USA... Go ahead take a drive to see it! It's well worth it! Do however take it easy, it is curvy it is steep and it is treacherous if you approach it in any other manner than a cautious one! Have fun!

A great place to hike, ride, or just drive through the canyon. Once you get up there its an awesome view of the valley.

We were hoping to really get in the mountains (we are from North Idaho - and we HAVE mountains and were feeling a little homesick after 2 weeks on the road). This drive was depressing - litter every where and signs telling you you could not go beyond this point..which I could see why you would want to anyway.

I've driven GMR off and on for decades. My Driver's Ed instructor took us up GMR and it was a good place to learn to drive on a very curvy road. It hasn't changed. Not a great place to go if you're in a rush to get from here to there, and definitely not a fun place to drive when it's wet and slippery.

That said, it can be a fun drive, especially in a sports car with a low center of gravity.
