Driver's Delight - Angeles Crest Highway with a new twist (or twists) to CA Poppy Reserve

Beloved by cyclists and sports car drivers, the Angeles Crest Highway in the San Gabriel Mountains is one of GPX's favorite playgrounds. The route will be up Angeles Crest Hwy then left down Angeles Forest Road for a day of driving the "Twisties". It continues on Sierra Hwy, Lake Elizabeth Road and end at the CA State Poppy Reserve. Visit the Jane S. Pineiro Interpretive Center to learn about our State Flower, the California Poppy then hike the trails to see the flowers up close. Parking is $10 per car or $9 for seniors.

CA State Poppy Reserve information: https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=627

Pack food and a cooler for a picnic lunch at the Reserve.

The "Twisties"

We will start in La Canada, on the top deck of the parking structure across behind Panera Bread, 990 Town Center Drive, La Canada, CA 91011 near the intersection of Angeles Crest Highway and the 210 Freeway. . See map and directions to follow later.

We will meet at 9:00 AM and depart promptly at 10:00 AM.

Starting up Angeles Crest Highway, the speed limit is 40 MPH.  We will observe all speed limits, as they allow ample opportunity for spirited driving. Final route information will be sent 3 days before the event.

***Safety, Road Conditions, Route and General Information will be broadcast on GMRS (Walkie-Talkie) radio, Monitor Channel 7, Sub-Channel 20
