Liebre Mountain

Liebre Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Blockbuster vistas from yet another ridgeline road. Here in the San Gabriel Mountains, you’ll be in the geologic and climatic meeting place of the southern Sierra Nevada (the Tehachapi Mountains), the Mojave Desert (Antelope Valley) and the South Coast Ranges. Although this road is some 50 miles from the ocean, it is in the east-west trending Transverse Ranges, one of the four geologic regions that make up California’s coastal mountains. This drive provides views of the transition from churning coastal mountains to grassy hills and the arid Mojave Desert. Most of the road follows part of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail (hiking)."

AWESOME vistas. Easy trail to navigate. Lots of wild flowers, blue jays and we even saw a fox along the way.

An excellent trail, but not as simple as many guides portray when there is snow on the ground. The snow tends to stay on the road, and turn this trip into a real challenge. My wife and I got stuck and had to winch ourselves out; this was in a modified Wrangler with MT tires. If there is snow on the ground, it would probably not be wise for a stock vehicle to drive this route.
