I'm looking to take the family to Big Bear Lake to see some folliage around Oct. Anyone have any better suggestion than that to see fall colors in S. California?

So Cal has pretty limited fall color, perhaps you can head up 395 towards Mammoth?

The L.A. Times article is ok, but I think it's "headline" illustration is a bit misleading. That's up 395 just north of Mono Lake. The color in the local mountains is pretty muted compared to the aspens and other colors in the eastern Sierra. The oak does get yellowish and there is some scattered dogwood and big leaf maple and some other broadleaf color. I've seen pictures of some color up around Mount Palomar but not sure on timing or how extensive.

Oak Glen (above Yuicaipa) can have some color, some of it is decorative plantings and with the apple harvest traffic and tourist draw, the area can be pretty crowded. The Landscape forum often has some discussion of the Sierra colors, too.

Thank you for the suggestion. I have never been to Oak Glen but I will definitely check it out.

This is extremely variable from year to year, but the deserts below Big Bear can have fall blooms that contrast with the soft blues and grays of the desert brush. This weekend I checked the Big Morongo area, off Hwy 62. (Not to be confused with the Casino area.) The Isocoma looked like it was ready to produce heavy golden bloom in the first or second week in October. This is spectacular if there is a mass bloom and it is backlit. There are also cottonwoods in the background that turn to yellow under the right conditions. In Joshua Tree, the Cholla cactus are in prime condition, thanks to recent rains. Again, these look good when backlit. In some other areas outside of Joshua Tree the Ocotillos look ready to bloom soon. Maybe the dense stands of Ocotillo near Borrego Springs will be showy--you can can check with the Natural History Society there.
