Bear of a road is Bear Valley Road … not the parkway in Escondido, but the rough, off-road trail south of Pine Valley. You’ll need four-wheel-drive and a steady hand, but it’s loads of fun. Online now.
A bonus drive is the east end of 94 from 2007. Even if you just have a few hours, explore the wide-open paved twists and turns. Stop off for chocolate (if the Wisteria Candy Cottage is open), some pie (although the Campo Diner has changed hands) and for sure a vintage truck museum. Online now.
