Stumbled upon this trail while trying to get to big bear in the middle of the night. Gps routed me through here as a shortcut due to the highway being closed. Craziest experience I've had in a long time. Offroading in the dark in the middle of winter. Great view of the lights at night though. I'll have to drive this trail in the daytime sometime. Try to enjoy the scenery.

Take your time hiking this trail. Elevation is high.

Too many clouds to see the valley.... Nevertheless great view !!!

what a wonderful drive ... doing 40 feels like 100. you can do your own version of Fast Furious: Tokyo Drift the entire 80 miles.

do go slow in the small towns and remember to buy local.

the views are just breath taking ...truly unique.

Not a trail, just a highway with lots of turnouts with beautiful views. I actually got proposed to last July in one of them ;)

We used to go up to Big Bear when I was a teenager living in San Pedro. I never tired of this incredible drive. Although they have made some improvements to the road, the spectacular views are still there.

Great windy roads. If you have a motorcycle take it out on this loop. Try to get out early on a weekday to avoid having to pass a lot of people. Also, watch for police on touristy days they will be around every bend. Oh yes, and the views are awesome.

Rim of the World High School is one of my favorite places in to see the most breath taking views on this road. The sunset is my favorite time to me there!

Take the drive, stop at numerous turnouts and definitely do not miss these views! Plan to stop by the high school at sunset!
