To get to the road it’s about an hour long drive outside of LA. There is a largish-dirt area near the spot where you can park and fly a drone but you’ll need to walk on the side of the road to get the best angles. Just be careful when walking around the area since the shoulder you need to walk on is fairly small and cars will actively be driving by.

Grimes Canyon Road Photos

Here are my pictures of Grimes Canyon road. I recommend bringing a wide angle lens and visiting the area at sunset to get the most out of the spot. Also if you stay while it gets dark you can capture light trails of cars driving up the road.


I hope you enjoyed my photos of Grimes Canyon road in California. This is easily one of my favorite places to photograph while visiting LA. If you have a drone you’ll also love capturing the curves of the road from the sky.
