Trivia

  • A road sign for the Eagle Canyon route appears in Need for Speed: World at a T-Junction near the North Bellezza event in northern Fortuna.
  • In Need for Speed: Carbon, the Quick Race map shows the location of each canyons route within the geographical lore of Palmont City. Each route is instead placed in a bespoke location, different to that shown on the Quick Race map, to ease with route design, scene rendering, environment stitching, and development time constraints.
  • In Need for Speed: Carbon, there is a duplicate of the Lookout Point route, but the route isn't used as it has no modelled landscape, no vehicle AI path nodes, and more points of lamppost illumination. In the PlayStation 2 demo of Need for Speed: Carbon, the same location has a duplicate minimap route of Gold Valley Run.
  • Various mini-map textures used specifically for some canyon routes could be found in Need for Speed: World in early 2011, but they were removed from the game in later builds.
