Los Angeles Crest and San Gabriel Canyon (Detour)

Distance: 96 miles and 9400 feet of elevation gain (estimate)

The detour route is the same as the standard route for the first 27 miles up to Clear Creek on Angeles Crest. At that point the detour turns left on Angeles Forest Hwy down to where Upper Big Tujunga intersects it. You turn right and take Upper Big Tujunga back up to Angeles Crest and resume the standard route. The portion on Angeles Forest (from mile 27 to mile 34) is mostly downhill, but Upper Big Tujunga is mostly uphill. The detour by-passes the water and toilet stop at Red Box so you should be prepared with enough water to ride from Clear Creek to lunch.
