Take a Fall Foliage Road Trip in Los Angeles - Yes, Los Angeles - in Your New Subaru

Your Subaru car or SUV - whether it's the Outback, Legacy, Impreza or WRX - is built for adventure and unexpected road trips, and this fall season offers the opportunity to experience one of L.A. County's most unexpected delights: a fall foliage tour. Depending on how far you're venturing, you can either opt for a crossover with kid and cargo-carrying capability - think Outback, Forester or Crosstrek - or go with a touring car like the Legacy, Impreza or sporty, high-performance WRX.

Following are several scenic stops in and around L.A. that could be easily be mistaken for rustic backcountry locations in Vermont, New Hampshire or Maine.

  • Solstice Canyon. Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, Solstice Canyon is home a range of local deciduous trees that should feature lovely color through early December. The Canyon is a great spot for a picnic or an easy hike.
  • Lake Arrowhead. Head out west to the San Bernardino Mountains to check out the autumn leaves on the trails and drives around Lake Arrowhead, which also hosts one of the biggest Oktoberfests in the area.
  • Oak Glen. If you're game for a whole day, or even a romantic weekend getaway, Oak Glen is even a little further out and has many varieties of large and beautiful trees whose leaves will be turning between now and November. It's also a great place to go apple-picking.
  • Ortega Highway. Looking south toward Orange Country, the scenic Ortega Highway leads from the Palm Desert to San Juan Capistrano and offers some terrific foliage in late October. It's also reportedly haunted, making it a perfect Halloween destination.

Regardless of where you decide to head this fall, your Subaru can take you there. Of course, before you set out on any road trip you should make sure your automobile's maintenance is up to date. If it's been awhile since your last tune-up, take a few minutes to check your fluid levels (oil, coolant, windshield washer) as well as your tire pressure.
