Round Trip to Lake Arrowhead on one charge

Postby rogwhiteleaf » Tue Sep 01, 2015 2:10 pm

I wonder if anyone knows, or have done a trip up Highway 18 (Waterman to Lake Arrowhead Village 22.5 miles) and back down starting at 90% SOC from the bottom of Highway 18, around the area of the 7-11 charging station at corner of Sierra Way and Waterman. Can the Leaf make it on top with enough juice to regen down the hill?

I like to try this, but being a new Leaf owner, I want to know if someone had done this.

Hello. Did you ever try the drive up the hill?

Friends are going camping and I was thinking of driving up to Dogwood. I did notice that the Lake Arrowhead Resort has a plug and sounds like a tip to the valet will do the trick for some juice. But I did theorize heading up with full charge to see if I can make the top. I live in LA and just heading up the 2 fwy to La Canada can eat up as many as 20 miles.

Thanks and Cheers
