Finally got out to see this view at sunset. 4WD was not required on the steep rocky Edison Trail. No clouds, just warm summer breezes, as we looked over the truck stop glow & the busy freeway. Locals like to off road at night, so be warned. Campgrounds are plentiful in Los Padres National Forest. Drive on past Frazier Park and hang a left on to Lockwood Valley Road to search for campgrounds.

on I-5, aka 'The Grapevine'

Major interstate traffic corridor linking Southern California to the agricultural Central Valley. This mountain pass has always been a through route for travelers, pioneers, natives and now the Interstate 5. Four major regions merge here: the Mojave Desert, the Coastal Ranges, the Sierra Nevada & the lower San Joaquin Valley. Snow is possible here at Tejon Pass (elev. 4144') during winter months. Wildflowers bloom in spring March-April.
