This 110-mile route follows the rim of the San Bernardino Mountains from Cajon Pass to the San Gorgonio Pass. The Rim of the World Scenic Byway travels through some of the most naturally beautiful areas left in Southern California. Spectacular vistas and panoramas are everywhere along the route. Start your cruise of The Rim at the Mormon Rock Fire Station west of Interstate 15. Along the Rim you’ll retrace routes taken by Mormon pioneers in 1851.

Next you’ll drive through quaint communities including Blue Jay, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead, and Running Springs. Stop and enjoy the restaurants and shops along the way. As you continue your climb 6,744 feet you’ll find yourself on the north shore of Big Bear Lake. The lake is over 4 miles long and you can drive around the entire lake and take the beauty of the region. Your adventure on the Byway will end at the Mill Creek Ranger Station.
