My favorite in my neck of the woods is at the end of Chapman/241 ... just be careful with the roadies (me included).
Fantastic recommendation. Went out for a ride with a friend and it was amazing. Crystal clear skies, huge, bright moon, and newly paved twisting roads up and down the moutain. Honestly, at times I felt like I was in a freakin BMW commercial!
PS. As attbimmer noted, the road is the Ortega Highway (57).
