Mulholland Drive is an iconic Los Angeles landmark, and a big piece of the county’s history. Immortalized in the 2001 film that shares its name, as well as through mentions in several popular songs, it is best known for its outstanding lookout points over the city.

The twisting road was built in 1924 and is named after its creator, LA Water Bureau Chief and City Engineer William Mulholland. An Irish immigrant, Mulholland was a self-taught engineer who rose through the ranks of the city by sheer determination. He is most know for building the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1913, one of the more controversial projects the city has seen.

His vision was to create a road that would take people from the congestion of the big city out into the mountains, for the beautiful views and fresh air. There are seven designated lookout points along the way, as well as tourist facilities. The road also provides access to two public parks–Franklin Canyon Park and Fryman Canyon Park.

The road winds through the gorgeous Santa Monica Mountains, which are a perfect escape from city life. Visitors can enjoy hiking trails, camping, or just quickly stopping by to catch a view and some fresh air. The seven designated overlooks offer views of famous LA landmarks, such as the Hollywood Bowl, Downtown Los Angeles, the San Gabriel Mountains, Stone Canyon Reservoir, Simi Valley, the San Fernando Valley, and on a clear day even the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island. The Mulholland Highway, which is the longer extension of the scenic drive, begins just north of LA in Calabasas, and terminates at Leo Carrillo State Beach.

To get to Mulholland Drive from the Comfort Inn at Woodland Hills, you have several options. There are numerous points of entry along the road itself, but the far western end of Mulholland drive is the closest to the hotel. This can be found by taking either the Ventura Freeway or Ventura Boulevard, and then turning right to head up into the mountains.

There are several twisting roads that will take you directly to the starting point, or you can opt for the San Diego Freeway (405), which will bring you slightly past the beginning of Mulholland Drive (and past the Grove Viewpoint) but save you some extra turns. Both routes are roughly eight miles from the Comfort Inn and is about a twenty to twenty-five minute drive away.

People love nature. This is a phenomenon that’s easy to explain. The explanation lies in evolutionary biology. Humans have evolved to be one with nature. Since ancient times, we have eaten, slept, walked, ran, drank, and lived in nature. The scenic greenery is something that triggers a primal mechanism in our bodies and we seem to gravitate towards it based on instinct. Try to name a single person you know that hates nature. Even the biggest cynics, hermits, and misanthropes all have some kind of a deeper appreciation of nature. This is due to the unbreakable bond that humans have with nature. But enough about philosophy. We have one place that we’d like to recommend you to visit. And it’s called Las Palmas Park.

Las Palmas Park 101

Of all the places to explore near Woodland Hills, Las Palmas Park should be a top priority on any person’s list for places to explore in the area. It’s one of the most beautiful parks we have ever seen, and trust us, we have seen some parks in our lifetime. Why is this so? What makes this park so unique and beautiful?

Well, words alone can’t really do justice for the beauty of this park. In fact, it’s a well-known fact among many travelers of the world that a place can be best experienced when you see it yourself. So, our advice to you is to come and visit the site of this park, especially if you, like us, are a lover of nature.

The park itself, besides being beautiful in its natural greenery and watery surfaces, offers some man-made embellishments of the place. For example, there’s a children’s playground in the area. This is an excellent way to provide fun and entertainment for your kids. They’ll be able to hang out and play with other children of their age, and make friends all the while. And as we all know, being social from an early age is a prerequisite for a normal psychological development of any person. Your children will be grateful for this when they grow up.

Moreover, there’s a tennis court here. Tennis is an excellent, competitive way to bond with your friends. At the same time, you’ll be moving your body in a vigorous manner and you’ll enjoy the benefits of physical exercise.

There’s a dog park area as well, perfect for any dog owner. The dog park is an excellent place to train your dog, and to let it socialize with other dogs in the process.

All in all, this is an excellent place where you could be spending your spare time with your friends and family, or even by yourself.

Even though this is a well-known part of the region for hiking, the view that this location provides is always full of excitement and amazing views. Even on a sunny day when the weather is ideal, it is still a good idea to use this trail. It is probably that you may meet dozens of other fellow hikers while on your journey. Once you reach the edge of Topanga Overlook, you will be able to observe the Santa Susana Mountains, Calabasas, Santa Monica Mountains, San Gabriel Mountains and the famous Red Rock Canyon Park.

This hiking trail is two miles long and you should be prepared to hike in and back out if you want to use it. During the first mile, you should be prepared for a gradual increase in elevation. It’s good to point out that there is another route to this point which is used less frequently, though it is an unmarked trail. You can find this route between two fire roads at the Calabasas Peak, but we suggest that you don’t use it if this is your first time here.
