CANYONS FROM VALLEY TO BEACH, RANKED
- •Kanan RoadAgoura -> Malibu. Nearly direct to Zuma, Free Zuma and Point Dume. Wide most of the way, easy drive, the tunnels are fun. Traffic from 3-5 PM in the summer, but it's not bad.
- •Topanga CanyonWoodland Hills -> Santa Monica. Narrow, winding at parts. I've never been to any of the stores, but they look cool. Nice view of the Valley, Topanga Overlook is great at night.
- •Las Virgenes Road/Malibu CanyonCalabasas -> Malibu. Fine, but Kanan is more direct to the popular beaches: Zuma, Point Dume, etc.
- •Decker CanyonWestlake -> Ventura. Direct to Leo Carrillo, but narrow and steep, terrifying, horrible, nauseating. A great route to take if you want the adrenaline and catharsis of a near death experience without the actual physical danger of a near death experience.
