Mt. Pinos Highway
This shorter roadway runs from Cuddy Valley to a parking area near the summit of Mt. Pinos at about the 8000′ level. In winter, the area is popular with cross country skiers. In summer, mountain biking and hiking are quite a lot of fun here. Parts of the trails follow abandoned sections of the roadway near the McGill and Mt Pinos campgrounds. The parking lot is used for “star parties” all times of year as the area is a fair distance from most cities and is a fairly high elevation.
