Rim of the World Highway - CA SR 18 & 330 + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Just North of San Bernadino, take CA SR 18 (North Waterman) exit off of Interstate 210
Incredible mountain vistas visible from this road literally on the "rim" of the mountain. Many pull over areas with visibility upwards of 20-30 miles and great stop for lunch at Lake Arrowhead Village and Lake. Fantastic stop, very scenic mountain lake at about 5,500'. Return via Running Springs (small mountain village between Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear)with more spectacular mountain vistas and twisties.
SR 18 is a well traveled road and in general, a good road; however, due to the cold weather and snow in the winter, there are some areas of the road that need to be repaired on occasion. SR 330 down the mountain is in excellent condition and recently paved.
Outstanding views with numerous pull-overs to include many tourist shops and eateries at Lake Arrowhead Village. Watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPrAuhtAZBU&list=UU2DeXSevJiutN9YQ0y70JLQ&hd=1
