It wasn’t so long ago that Golden Valley Road was a very short street that ran between Sierra Hwy and the 14 freeway in the eastern section of Newhall bordering Canyon Country. Originally developed as a causeway to Highway 14 that included Park N Ride lots on both sides of the street, it was a great (and easy) way to access the freeway without too much effort.

Over the years, Golden Valley Road has expanded greatly in both directions; spanning east and west of Sierra Highway, it’s now part of the Cross Valley Connector that can take Santa Clarita Residents from Highway 126 and Interstate 5 across the SCV to Highway 14 and the Fair Oaks Ranch community in Canyon Country.
