Ascent Trip Report

The Garcia Trail is closed and I found no reasonable route to Azusa Peak from the south, west, or north so I parked along Glendora Mountain Road at 34.17817 N, 117.84620 W (approximately 4.9 miles north of E. Sierra Madre Ave) and followed the Glendora Ridge Motorway. The Motorway starts on the west side of Glendora Mountain Road and was gated. It was nicely graded with good city views and views towards the mountains from Wilson to Baldy. Azusa Peak has a cross and bench. Benchmark on Glendora Peak. This would make a nice evening hike to see the city lights or an easy bike trip.
