There are many nice views from this road but you must be careful as this is a dangerious road with many curves and steep dropoffs. Drive slow and carefull. Nice place to see wild tarantulas.

Great drive, it was cloudy when we got high up but we still had some really great views. An unfortunate amount of trash at the pullouts. Took awhile, not for those easily carsick, but this road was my favorite part of a trip to LA
