Distance: 24 miles and 1600 feet of elevation gain (mapping software)
The short route does not head up Angeles Crest at all. Instead, it starts with a loop to the south through South Pasadena and San Marino. Then it heads back to the Rose Bowl and makes a loop up to Foothill and the base of Angeles Crest. It stops here for lunch and then heads back to the Rose Bowl. It is a moderately hilly route, but nothing like the other routes.
