Overview

3N31Y Upper Lytle Creek Divide lies entirely within the San Bernardino National Forest and straddles the Upper Lytle Creek Ridge, offering east and west views. Many locations along the way offer views of the foot-worn Pacific Crest Trail, which closely parallels the road and intersects at the road's highest elevation near Gobbler's Knob.

Upper Lytle Creek Divide offers a pleasant escape from the metropolis with views of the majestic San Gabrial Mountains to the west and the Cajon Pass to the east. There are beautiful vistas all along the way, dominated in the west by the 10,000' granite top of Mt San Antonio and the 9500 feet peak of Mt. Harwood, while below can be seen the jumbled boulders that make up Lytle Creek. To the east is an expansive view of Cajon Pass hosting Interstate 15, bolstered by the 5400' Cajon Mountain Range.

The road is well maintained, excellent for novice off-roaders looking to get their wheels dirty, and, with the views, a perfect road for all driving skill levels. Your dog can also enjoy the trail when kept on a leash.
