so this is a tour for those of you guys who have never been to the canyons in hacienda, Turnbull Canyon.

its rather short, only about 2-3 miles i think, where there is no residential area and just curves and blind turns, with excessive(sp?) elevation change. its not too shabby for beginners, and its close to home compared to GMR, Malibu, etc.


here are some random pics:










not the BEST pictures in the world, but not to fret, WAY more to come within the following days. ive been going almost everyday, and im addicted to it.


random clips:

some of the fxin corners are dangerious at night IMO, it's like a 70 degree turn and going up or down, if there is an upcomming traffic - good luck.

been there many times.

then you should try Cooks Corner on Santiago Canyon or Ortega Highway when you get to the top... GOOD LUCK!


When i drove, i used to canyon run roughly 4 times a week, sometimes more, sometimes less.. I ate through my pirelli's in roughly 7k miles.. (down to the metal cables)

Aaron, nice pictures, when i can drive again, lets go canyon run.. Just be careful!

sure malek! u know ur always welcome to come ride along, and just give me pointers. im having a hard time picking out good lines, but that just sounds like a line out of initial D. but seriously, im having a hard time finding the quickest way around each corner, without losing too much speed. mainly the blind turns were i can take them at 30mph tops, when the road is dry. i think its great if u just started canyon-ing, and its pretty short so u can know the course within 2 weeks if u go everyday.

more pics to come, im going with my gf right now!

I've been up Turnbull Canyon a few times. It's a nice canyon drive, although there is a good amount of residential stuff for the first part of it so be careful. The blind, sharp corners are scary at night. If you go up there, have fun and be careful!

Azusa Canyon or Hwy 39 as they call it, is an excellent drive as well... !!!

But you have to get there early Sat or Sun mornings.. otherwise don't bother going..

Here is a few pics fom Feb 2003 :cool:







Enjoy
