Trail Information


East Blue Ridge Road is an excellent trail for spending a few hours enjoying beautiful views of the eastern side of the San Gabriel Mountains.  The inner rugged canyons and valleys of these mountains can not be appreciated until you experience them firsthand.  This trail has two nice free campgrounds where you can relax under shady pine trees.  The campgrounds are seldom crowded, a rarity for campgrounds so close and easy to reach.  The trail is easy and 2WD-friendly unless the weather is abnormally poor.
