    Big Tujunga Canyon Road
    Mount Wilson Road

    The whole area covers 900km² of California mountains and canyons. And around 150km of highway, side roads, and side roads off of those sideroads... they're all real world sideroads.
    Consisting of a large number of fast sweepers...Perfect for cruising, street racing and drifting.

    These roads are among those used in The Smoking Tire Youtube videos.
    Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire has driven LA Canyons. This is Matt's awesome review :)

    This is suitable for Online Multiplayer, Quick Race and Practice sessions... Race Weekends (with AI) work only up to Qualifying.
    I would recommended using a high aggression setting for the AI, so they're able to race door to door on these narrow roads!

    How to remove Pit Crew & Wrong Way Sign!
    No Wrong Way sign
    If you want to remove the "wrong way" sign from popping up... Download this small mod from Gamer19

    Remove Pit Crew (Lollipop guy)

    I have seen the growth of this track since it was an unusual desert in the summer of 2017... it was still great but now it is amazing. Thank you very much for sharing your work.
    Yesterday I made a donation, I would like to enjoy the rest of LA Canyons roads. :)

    Love this track! Spent so much time on it! Litterally my favorite map since Lake Louise dropped, and I think this one is more polished! Just donated earlier, I cannot wait for the extra roads to get lost on! Had to much fun already doing these roads!!!

    I love this map, it makes a great playground, practicing, casual, and competitive map. If there were one thing I could personally change it would be having this amazing detailed version, and a less detailed version for those who have lower grade rigs. Overall AMAZING and a must have.

      Thanks for the review... If anyone needs a less detailed version... All they have to do is reduce the 'World Detail' slider, then layers of trees etc aren't rendered.

      Glad you're enjoying the Californian playground :)

    man you did an amazing job ! I used to go up to this mountain regularly with my sr powered s13. Just driving up this road brings back so many memories ! Thank you for this masterpiece !
    on a side note , I just donated. When do you think the download link will pop up in my email ? thanks again man! hope to see more dope models ! maybe something like GMR ? AKA Glendora mountain road. its another canyon road in the los angeles national forest. its more of a toge instead of those nice open roads so its much better for low HP drift cars.

      Really glad it brings back memories for you :)
      Yeah GMR is one awesome road... Along with Glendora Ridge Road... I think I heard somewhere that someone was attempting GMR. So many great roads in California... Not enough time!
      Cheers for the support!
