The best I've seen (although I haven't really looked too hard) would be over around Morningside, through the Rouge river. There are some whack roads around the Zoo, etc. No street lights, curvy, little traffic. Very cool, but short.

I don't think you will find too much in the Toronto area because it is not all that hilly and it's basically suburbia (lots of grid-patterned roads interspersed with residential sprawl). I'd say look around areas of protected land or near the lake for interesting roads (but out in the burbs moreso than downtown). Other than that, I'd think you would have to drive about 30 minutes out of town to find anything decent (and you may be hard pressed to do that even then).

If you're really dying to find some cool roads, it might be worth the trip to a more mountainous area, say like Vermont. I've heard from some past co-workers that they have nearly shit their pants driving through there (at night, foggy, very quick, no guardrails, deep canons, etc.)

rootkid is exactly right on Twyn Rivers, which is the road just East of the Meadowvale exit from the 401. See my long fairytale about it here: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=7537&highlight=evening+tango

To get there, exit at Meadowvale, and head North. 2 lights up, turn right onto Sheppard Ave. East. After like 0.3km's, Sheppard itself will start to bend right but there is a road that continues straight. Turn on your left indicator and head down there. This is by far the best road I have ever seen in Toronto.

The Zoo is also in this area, as rootkid pointed out. Just continue up Meadowvale past Sheppard and for your own sake pack a map or NAV unit. Trust me, my Perly's has gotten me out of there many a time. :eeps:
