Restaurant in Wrightwood, California in scenic mountain setting

Plan a trip to scenic Wrightwood and have fun driving along Angels Crest highway

Wrightwood, California, USA


Angels Crest Highway is a fun road north of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel mountains. It is genuinely a driver’s paradise with twists and turns, uphills and downhills. There are always many motorbikes and classic cars here, especially on the weekends. The road climbs all the way to 8,000 feet and, in winter months, can be closed. So when you plan a trip to Angels Crest, always check the weather. Small but scenic Wrightwood is a small community that welcomes many visitors. It is off the beaten path; not many people visiting LA think about exploring Angels Crest.
