Do you need relief from the hubbub of L.A. traffic, 24-hour news and Internet-connected gadgets?

Imagine an elixir blended of nature and machine — a rejuvenating drive up a scenic mountain road along rugged ridges beneath expansive blue skies.

The Angeles Crest Highway winds its way through 66 miles of the Angeles National Forest rising up to an elevation of 7,901 feet above the Pacific Ocean. Quite possibly the most picturesque mountain road in Southern California, the Angeles Crest Scenic Byway promises to satisfy any driving enthusiast with its collection of twisty curves and sweeping switchbacks.

Turnouts along the way provide countless opportunities for photographing the wonderful panorama of the San Gabriel Mountains. Along the way, Angeles National Forest trailheads invite further exploration of the mountain’s solitude and natural beauty. It’s a tried-and-true prescription that promises satisfaction for all your senses.

This destination was chosen by Mercedes-Benz of Encino in Los Angeles to stimulate your mind with fresh ideas of adventure and renewal. To find out more, we suggest browsing this handy guide what things that may interest you along the way.

Making the drive on the Angeles Crest Highway in your own Mercedes-Benz would certainly enhance this uniquely L.A. experience. But, just imagine how satisfying it would be to have room for all your cameras and picnic supplies loaded into your own 2013 Mercedes-Benz C300 4MATIC Sport Sedan.
