    There are tons of canyon roads up in the Woodland Hills area. If you start there and head west to the beach, you have quite a choice of canyon roads to go thru, many of them 10+ minutes long at 60+ mph. Very fun, different levels of difficulty as well. Well worth the drive and homework to find the one that best fits you.
    Yeah Boi!!!

    ...don't forget Ortega canyon off 5 South out of San Jaun Capistrano for all the South OC ppl. We used to run it on bikes many years ago. Now its over run with ppl like the rest of S.CA.

    If you go early in the morning it can still be a nice run with plenty of opportunities for head-on collisions and other carnage-

    We Used to Do our Ortega Highway runs at around 1 am on weekdays, all the way to Lake Elsinore. it is rare to even see another car, but always be on the defensive anyway.

    Another really good drive is the Los Angeles Crest Highway. It runs from out near Glendale to Mount Baldy village above Upland. It's probably a good 10-15 of intense driving. It is a killer run to do in the early morning, just watch out for motorcycles, they love that route as well. It has plenty of long turns and sharp corners. There are a lot of changes in the road that keep you on your toes.
    About time, got my Platinum 04 WRX

    Take the 138 east off of the 15. Awesome mountain roads with some nice unposted speed limit straights.

    maulholland, topanga, kanan are nothing. u want good canyons, take mauholland to stunt rd, then to piumma or sherrer to la tuna canyon. la tuna is one way and is a replica of the roads of monte carlo, then there is latigo canyon also a very good canyon. but keep in mind its not for novice drivers the twists and turns will make ur arms ache. up north hwy 1 is also very nice and goes along the coast.

    I just went down that road a couple days ago. I went about 9:00 pm which seems like a good time to go except you have to keep your brights on and shut them off for oncoming cars (hardly any). Some parts the speed limit is 55mph; I can't imagine a minivan taking those corners that fast.

    For anybody who lives in Chino or the surrounding areas like me carbon canyon is a great road too. It's a good 15-20 minutes and has many types of high speed and lowspeed turns. It even has 2 hairpin turns that are just insanly fun. It's not really near any freeways to speak of but it's near the 57 if you get off at Imperial Highway

    Griffith Park on the Burbank side of Zoo Dr. is pretty cool it's about a 10min drive and will cut about a good 1/2 hour off the rush hour drive home, but you gotta watch out for Horses! but if it's later in the day it's practically empty
