Glendora Mountain Road Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Glendora Mountain Road is a challenging climb up into the San Gabriel Mountains at the far eastern edge of Los Angeles County. What distinguishes this road from other mountain roads is that it is closed to traffic. This is arguably the quietest, most peaceful climb a rider can make in the San Gabriel Mountains. After reaching the top, riders can attack the zigzagging road along the ridge, taking them to Mount Baldy, a small village that has a couple of restaurants, a lodge, a post office, and a fire department that resides in the shadow of Mount Baldy. Riders can either return by doubling back on their route or dropping into the Los Angeles basin. Road surface: Good. Road traffic: Moderate. Exposure: Mornings and late afternoons can be overcast. Scenery: Alpine environment and some city views."
