Any there any light offroad, scenic dirt/small rocky trails in the Angeles Crest in the San Gabriel Mountains?

yeah, there are lots of dirt roads up there.
I was up there last weekend and I only found one that was open since the snow though.
After the snow melts though, they will probably open a lot of them up.

Thanks for the reply. Can you tell me the names of the roads or how far in they are? I'd like to find some of them, thanks!

there is 4N37, 3N17, 4N32, 4N33, you kind of have to drive around and find them to see if they are open or not.
Googlemaps has a lot of trails up there, but some of the ones they list are never open. It can get frustrating for sure.

The San Gabriels are just covered with fire roads. Many of the lower elevation ones are open year round. One of the best views of the San Gabriel "back range" is from the Sierra Pelona motorway, which you can catch right across the street from Bouquet Canyon reservoir. Since you asked about the Angeles Crest and not Angeles Forest, I'm guessing you are coming from the other direction?

If by other direction you mean a little south of the San Gabriel mountains, then yes. Are there any roads in the forest then too? thanks.
