Either way is OK--- they are both about the same time. We drove between here and L Arrowhead for a year and I took both ways. Its only about 48-50 miles, but it takes about 1 hr 20min. (depending)Whats the fastest way from Lake Arrowhead ?? I was thinking about going through Big Bear.
If you come BB way- past the cement plant down town to the stop sign, turn left (west) go about 1 1/2 miles - on the left. Next to Desert minimart/gas.how far after the mine is your place ?
