California State Route 142

California State Route 142

State Route 142, (SR 142) also known as Carbon Canyon Road for most of its length, runs southwest from State Route 71 in Chino Hills, through Olinda Village to its intersection with Lambert Road and Valencia Avenue in Brea. At the intersection, the highway turns south onto Valencia Avenue and ends at State Route 90, Imperial Highway. The eastern portion of the route is known as Chino Hills Parkway.

It is signed as a scenic route from the Orange-San Bernardino County line to Peyton Drive in Chino Hills. It is a popular shortcut between the Inland Empire and the business centers of Brea and surrounding Orange County; however, the road has multiple tight curves, so travel is not recommended for long vehicles, such as big rigs.

Famous quotes containing the words state, route and/or california:

    The longer a woman remains single, the more apprehensive she will be of entering into the state of wedlock. At seventeen or eighteen, a girl will plunge into it, sometimes without either fear or wit; at twenty, she will begin to think; at twenty-four, will weigh and discriminate; at twenty-eight, will be afraid of venturing; at thirty, will turn about, and look down the hill she has ascended, and sometimes rejoice, sometimes repent, that she has gained that summit sola.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    The route through childhood is shaped by many forces, and it differs for each of us. Our biological inheritance, the temperament with which we are born, the care we receive, our family relationships, the place where we grow up, the schools we attend, the culture in which we participate, and the historical period in which we live—all these affect the paths we take through childhood and condition the remainder of our lives.
    Robert H. Wozniak (20th century)

    This land is your land, this land is my land,
    From California to the New York Island.
    From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters
    This land was made for you and me.
    Woody Guthrie (1912–1967)
