    Thanks to 'The Extra Mile' for the great drift video 'One Take'

    For added realism, share the experience and practice online with other drivers!
    Oncoming Traffic adds a whole new dimension!
    There are a number of servers currently online, with a variety of cars.

    Search for 'canyons' :)


    A 42km (26 miles) circuit winding through the San Gabriel mountain range, high above Los Angeles.

    There are also another 73km+ of extra VIP roads for anyone kind enough to send a coffee. Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoy the sheer scale of the whole area :)
    Includes:
    39km's of Angeles Crest - From Newcombs - La Cañada Flintridge
    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.

    Also now has more accurate junctions... Use freeroam to remove the concrete / series 3 (road closed) barricades.

    Upper Big Tujunga - Angeles Forest Highway Junction

    These roads are among those used in "The Smoking Tire" videos. Consisting of a large number of constant radius corners, most of which are fast sweepers... Perfect for plenty of 100mph+ drifts.

    This is suitable for Online Multiplayer, Quick Race and Practice sessions... Race Weekends work only up to Qualifying.
    No track cameras, they will be done after the trees go in.

    To do list

    Add HR FFB road meshes.. at over 100km's this will take some time.
    Add foliage.. (A lot of foliage)
    Add track cameras (Will add these after all the trees go in)
    Add various other layouts.(depending on the sizes of AI lines)

    Credits
    A massive thanks goes to @Ben O'Bro for the awesome bridge, roadside foliage and rockfaces... and for sharing his knowledge of 3DS Max.
    Huge thanks to @correca for recording a normal / reverse AI line, for maps for those layouts... and for general testing.

    Thanks
    A big thanks to @shmafoozius @Mumaransa @correca and any one else hosting servers. Some awesome driving on them. Much appreciated!

    If you enjoy open world driving I strongly recommend donating and get the VIP version

    Amazing rocks and (soon) trees! Make the place alive! Joke aside. Thanks for making such a crazy huge project and getting me involved, i'm enjoying every drive there! Feels like the freedom i experienced playing the first NFS ! Can't wait for future updates

      Cheers pal!

      It's an absolute honour having you involved with this super crazy huge project, thanks for being brave enough to take it on.

      It's great that you're enjoying every drive, and enjoying the freedom this huge area brings...
      I remember your first words on seeing the huge terrain.
      "Sweet holy moly" I think that might have been the polite version! lol

      I also can't wait to get the next update out there...
      so people can experience the awesomeness of your trees! :)

      Thanks again for all your awesome work!

    Just wonderful, my new favorite as far as AC roads goes! The road surface feels great even at this stage, especially since the big map shake AC bug is very minimal (which is outstanding).

    Its one of the first time I'm feeling so immersed that I dont mind driving slowly-ish and carefully, just like I would do in real life.

    The new bushes and rocks makes the scenery that much better. Can't wait to see the progress on that front!

    Thank you so much, and see you online on these roads :)

      Thanks Mathieu, glad it's your new favourite road track :)
      High Resolution FFB road meshes & trees will be coming in a few weeks, and will intensify the immersion even further.
      It will be cool going for a drive with you and all the other people who are enjoying this online soon.

      Online car meets along the Crest are just what I was planning at the beginning of this huge project... So it's great to see it working so well :)

      Thanks, Glad you're loving these roads :)
      These roads are in the San Gabriels... just North of LA.
      Mulholland Hwy (If that's what you mean) is in Malibu, to the West of LA. Otherwise known as 'The Snake'... It's on my to do list ;)

    Thanks for this awesome road. I have so much fun cruising around with other people in mp. Great quality.
    This is what Kunos' Black Cat County should've been.
    I just sent you a coffee. Can't wait for future updates. Keep it up!

      Thanks a lot :)
      That's exactly the way to drive these roads, online with the cool drivers I've driven with. I built it with multiplayer at it's core.
      Online supercar / hypercar car meets are so fun!
      Thanks for the great review.
