From the 210 in Glendora, head north on Grand. Turn right on Foothill, then left on Valley Center. After a quick jog left on E. Sierra Madre, turn right on Glendora Mtn. Rd. If you're unsure of where you are, follow the other bikers. :-) At the top of Glendora Mtn., there is a cutoff to the right that takes you into Baldy Village (12 miles) called Glendora Ridge. Yee-haw!
A lot of forest scenery, vast canyon vistas, snow-capped mountains - this is a great scenic route! It takes you up into the Angeles National Forest where you will get out of the city and take in some incredible views!
Very twisty, little traffic (except for other bikers - mostly on sport bikes). Road is well maintained. Glendora Ridge has no center stripe, watch for oncoming traffic around the blind turns.
Restaurants in Mt. Baldy Village, and a nice little country store on Hwy 39 down by the river.
