great back road to travel with no traffic.passed a few small towns with great stores to stop at.Its a nice change from the crowded freeways.The small towns had gas stations and bathrooms and always a store or somewhere to stop if the need arrises.

I am on this highway every day. It used to be called Death Trap Highway due to the usually high annual death count. .

Many parts have been widened, dividers installed, etc. But you must still be careful. Speed limit is 55 and most people drive 65-80, tail gate, muscle past you at mergings, pass on double yellows.

Either there are no cops out to curb the bad driving behavior or they are all over the place with offenders busy signing their tickets,

Good side - yes, there are beautiful mountain views, u-pick orchards, Charlie Brown Farms-definately drop in there, the Valley Hungarian Sausage-Meat, Scottaglia Fruit Stand

Back when this was a two lane highway with little opportunity to pass slower cars, this highway had the reputation of being one of the deadliest in the country! I'm sure that has changed with the improvements made over the last few years. Much of it is now 4 lane and where it's 2 lane, there is adequate passing lanes incorporated at decent intervals. I use this highway often, especially when I go down to San Diego to visit family.

Great views of the mountains along Route 138. Make sure you bring your camera along. You may run into a few farmer's markets selling fresh fruit and vegetables.
