Written Directions

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!

Scenery

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!

Drive Enjoyment

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.

Tourism Opportunities

Restaurants in Mt. Baldy Village, and a nice little country store on Hwy 39 down by the river.

Glendora Ridge Rd is one of the most unique rides in So Cal. the scenery is pretty amazing for being in our backyard. The foliage is some of the most aromatic you'll find and the forest view is vast and majestic. Caution to the inexperienced... the road is narrow and unmarked for two way traffic much of the 22mi. The crotch-rocket set thinks this road is their own personal Rally. Be sure to stop off at Mt. Baldy lodge for a good Burger and brew... BE SAFE !

I ride GMR almost every weekend. It is a very technical ride. Be aware of the sport bikes and bicyclists. It is beter to ride early on the weekends and mid day during the week.

Of the roads I've taken, this was the worst. Does not compare at all to Angles Crest. Road quality wasn't great. Lots of dirt. No nice sweeping turns. Mainly for really slow cruising.
