Amazing scenery!! The mountains were so different from AZ. We had to deal with a terrible accident but were able to enjoy the scenery while that was taken care of.

I have a hard time believing that this is listed as an attraction. It is one of the most unsafe roadways I've ever experienced. There are always serious accidents on this road whether it be day or night. We only drive this road when we...More

The 138 is not a bad hwy as some may think. Respect the road, no texting or drinking. Obey the signs & flow of traffic. Lots of history and great scenery. I enjoy the 138!

Pearblossum is not a quick route. I took it because I wanted to avoid the heavy traffic as you get closer to LA. It is a nice quieter alternative and you will probably save some time. Many parts are 50 MPH so keep that in... More
