Good Driving Roads in OC?

In lieu of going to a track, are there any fun driving roads in Orange County? PCH seems a bit boring until you get past Malibu.

Thanks for your help!

There is a nice road that connects the 5 to the 15 in south OC... I would guess just south of Lake Forest/Laguna Hills area cutting accorss to the Temecula area. I've driven this road once and and its fun to drive. There is also another similar road between Yorba Linda and Chino Hills although not as long. My favorite in my neck of the woods is at the end of Chapman/241 ... just be careful with the roadies (me included).

You are thinking of Ortega Highway off the 5 freeway, which is a nice drive.

Santiago Canyon Road and Live Oak Canyon Road off El Toro road in Lake Forest are pretty fun and closer if you live further north on OC.

lol, fair enough. I didn't word that too well. What I meant was, while I know the most fun you can have with your car is on the track, what other roads can I drive in Orange County that will also also provide a great time.

(relax man! )

+100!

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!

Thanks

PS. As attbimmer noted, the road is the Ortega Highway (57).

I'd say ortega highway is one of the best, just go at night because during the day people use it as a way to/from work.
