This is a must road trip along the mountains, a great ride, from Mt. Baldy Road in Ontario to Glendora. 12 miles of the most scenic mountains you will ever experience. No traffic except the occasional bike rider. Just one after another amazingly incredible views!

I went to this hill for the first time March 9th 2017 (it's been a great year for snow!) And it was excellent. The staff who fitted my dad with skis were friendly and helpful. The hill itself ranges from really easy to somewhat difficult....More

It's a really nice nature drive up the mountains from Redlands / I-210, filled with a curvy, twisty & winding road - glad it's not in the winter time! Very picturesque & scenic area! Enjoy...

Very fun drive up the mountains at least in Spring when no snow is there. Any car will generally do outside of snow season (otherwise u need chains and maybe 4x4 dependant on conditions). The town of Mt Baldy is like going back in time,...More

We had a nice day driving up the mountain. We stopped several times along the way to enjoy the scenery and take pictures. Also stopped for lunch at a local restaurant.

Make sure you have good brakes. The drive is short, and the views are great. Amazing to be at 80 degrees and sunny in LA, and drive less than 45 minutes to the scenic snow.

It's a beautiful drive up to Mt. Baldy (the town) from Claremont, CA. Plenty of side turnouts / lookouts that let you see river beds and snow-capped mountains (in the winter season). The town itself is rather rustic (like it's 1963 and nothing has changed),...More
