Scenic Drives – Bouquet Canyon Road

Bouquet Canyon Road

This road runs north-south from Saugus in Santa Clarita to Leona Valley. In Saugus, the road is a four to six lane thoroughfare with a bike lane along part of its journey. About one mile after leaving the Santa Clarita City Limits, the tract homes are replaced by real ranches and open space. Most of the road that is driven today was built in the 1930’s, although there has been a road in this canyon since the late 1800’s.

One of the many sharp curves in the middle section of Bouquet Canyon. Curves range from 35mph down to 20mph.
