Angeles Crest Scenic Byway: La Canada to Mountain Top Junction is a 7 mile out and back trail located near La Canada Flintridge, CA that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and scenic driving and is accessible year-round.
This is a pretty drive, and not far from Los Angeles, so it's a good escape into nature. The views further into the San Gabriels is more dramatic, but this is definitely a lovely break from the city.
A great drive if you love to drive mountains their is not much from La Canada to Mountain top until you reach wrightwood but a nice drive just to get away
As a youth this was one of my favorite motorcycle rides and honestly it still is. This is a great way to get away from the city for a real adventure head farther to Wildwood.
