Can someone tell me what the "GMR" is?

Google Map

Also, about 8 miles or so, mostly 5-6% grade, a few corners steeper, a few spots flatter. Not a hard climb as long as you find your rhythm/pace and stay within yourself.

Watchout though, as motorcyclists & street-lugers often cut corners and cross the center line. It's much nicer when it's closed to vehicular traffic.

You'll also need to know that GRR means Glendora Ridge Road, which intersects with GMR and continues on up to Mt. Baldy. And then there's ACH which means Angeles Crest Highway, and AFH, Angeles Forest Highway, both ways to reach Mt. Wilson. There's others.
