Take a cruise on virtual Ortega Highway by downloading the Google Pack and installing Google Earth. Under driving directions, go "San Juan Capistrano, CA" to "Lake Elisnore, CA" and press play.
This is an overview of the Ortega Highway between Lake Elsinore and San Juan Capistrano.
Begin at the I5 Freeway in San Juan Capistrano, head east toward the hills (watch your speed!)
The road is wider here and there is some cross traffic due to local businesses.
After the passing lane and bridge, the road narrows and begins to twist.
The twisting continues up past the Candy Shop and all the way to a second passing lane.
Just past the big curves and the seccond passing lane, you will near Hell's Kitchen.
From there, it is just about all down hill. Stop off at The Lookout for some great views of the lake!
