State Route 330

Home » Guides » California Highways » State Route 330

California 330 travels between California 210 at Highland and California 18 at Running Springs. It is among the faster routes to the Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead resorts. The state route consists of a remnant of the original route of California 30, which used to turn northeast at Highland and head toward Running Springs rather than head southeast back to Interstate 10 (as it did until 2007, when California 30 was replaced with California 210).
