This chapter describes a tour to Big Pines which takes the following route: Los Angeles–Burbank–San Fernando–Palmdale–Big Pines–San Bernardino; 146.9 m.; US 6, State 138, Big Pines Rd., US 66. This route circles the San Gabriel Mountains, by way of two large valleys-the San Fernando and the Antelope, which is roughly at the edge of the Mojave Desert. Topography and climate change constantly as the road leaves the coastal watershed, skirts the Mojave Desert, and mounts the pine-scented mountain ridges, and runs for 20 miles at an elevation of about 5,000 feet through the Angeles and San Bernardino National Forests.
