san gabriel mtns north of hwy 2 (angeles crest highway-ach). any stretch from la caņada to wrightwood.
We all know the SoCal does not have the most vibrant flora. The scenery is either green or brown, depending on the time of year. I find the initial part both boring and full of cars. It gets better once you past the intersection to Mt Wilson and it gets really nice once you start getting pine trees around 5K feet. The part from Charlton Flat up to Dawson Saddle and down to Wrightwood is especially nice.

Most love GMR/GRR, but I also like the 38, although it can have a car problem on the initial part before the east fork. The switchbacks before Crystal Springs is one of my favorite spots. They go east-west and you have a perfect view of the valley to the south.

I love riding in the Hollywood Hills, especially in the Beverly Hills/Bel Air. Amazing houses, especially if you go off the main road. These hills are very steep, so make sure you like to climb.
