SR-330: City Creek Road

ca_330_smallCity Creek Road
Runs from State 30 in Highland to State 18 in Running Springs.

This road was once a part of State Highway 30. It also has a grade-separated interchange at each end. Hwy 330 is an alternate route to the Big Bear area and is quite busy as a result. Most of it is a steep, winding route heading up the mountain.

Old bridge crossing City Creek on the pre-1948 alignment. Not sure how old this structure is, but I am guessing early 1920's at the latest.
