Virtual Tour of the Ridge Route
Castaic marks the beginning (or ending) of the trip over the mountains. This begins the “Ridge Route” section. Sadly, a major portion of the climb has been wiped out for development. Curbing, concrete, and the alignment itself were still relatively intact until it was bulldozed for houses. As a greater insult, the new roadway was named the Ridge Route. The still intact segment of the original alignment is now known as Castaic Lake Drive and only goes to Castaic Brick.
