FULL CLIMB STATS
Lower Big Tujunga Road winds through a beautiful desert canyon, climbing roughly 1800 feet. For the official PJAMM climb, we include the right turn on Angeles Forest Highway to the Clear Creek intersection because it is more than worth doing, and to include the stunning overlooks west back over the climb you just rode. As well as being an incredibly scenic climb, this is a great A to B ride as well, taking you right to iconic LA area climbs like Mt. Wilson, Mt. Gleason, or Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road.

Excellent; paved recently (in early 2023)
You can start your ride through the Los Angles National Forest anywhere by parking along the side of the road at a pulloff, trailhead or scenic view. Most of these places you need to buy a daily adventure pass, but an America the Beautiful national park pass will also work.
You can also find places to park for free just outside of the NF, like at local parks such as Oro Vista Park at the entrance of Big Tujunga Canyon.
Generally very light. Our route for this climb turns right and ends at Clear Creek intersection, and traffic may be a bit heavier on the Angeles Forest Highway after this turn.
Do NOT ride north in the mid to late afternoon on Angeles Crest Hwy or Angeles Forest Hwy - traffic is very heavy to Palmdale.
