MULHOLLAND SCENIC PARKWAY
By Eye Spy LA Editor
02/04/2013


TELL YOUR FRIENDS



A scenic drive along Mulholland Drive is one of the things I recommend to do on Valentine's Day especially if Cupid shoots Mother Nature with a love arrow and it turns out to be a beautiful day. This is always a romantic and scenic drive on a clear day.
We started at the Stone Canyon Overlook east of the 405 and continued to the eastern most Hollywood Bowl Overlook just west of the 101. The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy maintains the overlooks along the Mulholland Scenic Parkway. Some of the overlooks are pullouts where you can get out of the car and have a look, others have trailheads and larger parking areas.

The Stone Canyon Overlook (south side of Mulholland) has a small parking lot and a short paved path leads to two viewing points; one with a view southwest overlooking the Stone Canyon Reservoir, the 2nd provides a view of the San Fernando Valley.

Continue driving east to Coldwater Canyon, then look for the left turn back onto Mulholland. Some of the Overlooks are easy to overlook. Here is a map link to help you spot them.

We stopped at the Nancy Hoover Pohl Overlook at Fryman Canyon (north side) which has a 40 car parking lot and trail access to Fryman Canyon Park, a popular place to take fido. Next stop was the Universal City Overlook and then on to the last stop at the Hollywood Bowl Overlook.


This is where the tour vans stop for a great view of the Bowl, Hollywood and Downtown L.A. This is a particularly good stop for sunrise and sunset views. A stairway leads up from the small parking lot to the best view point where you'll see the Hollywood sign, Griffith Observatory and the rest. There are some mounted telescopes to look through too. Take your camera and binoculars.
