It’s time for a scenic drive to enjoy the beauty of this great state of California. If you haven’t driven down the Jacinto Reyes Scenic Byway yet, then you are in for a treat. It’s about a two-hour drive from Los Angeles, and then you can enjoy the sunning beauty of this amazing scenic drive.
The Jacinto Reyes Scenic Byway was built to link the California Gold Coast with the San Joaquin Valley. Though the highway is located so close to the bustling cities of California, there is a great deal of wide open space and undeveloped land to enjoy as your drive down the Byway.
There are a couple of great photo spots to stop and enjoy during this trip. Make sure to take a look at the Dry Lakes Ridge Botanical Area as well as the Piedra Blanca Rock Formations for some fabulous photography opportunities. You’ll also find a lot of signs along the way with information about the natural resources of the area. So you can actually get a little lesson about the area as you go for your drive.
In addition, there are some great places to bring along a bicycle and go for a ride. You’ll find a few spots to park and go for a bike ride to enjoy the stunning view and natural beauty that surrounds this area. When you are done, you can camp over night at the Rose Valley Campground or just hop back in your car and head home.
The perfect car for a trip like that? The E550 Cabriolet from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. For a long drive, it is so important to be comfortable and ride in luxury, the kind that only a Mercedes-Benz can offer. So get comfy, grab a picnic basket and enjoy the spectacular beauty of the Jacinto Reyes Scenic Byway.
