Mulholland Scenic Parkway and Corridor

Mulholland Drive - Mulholland Highway


The fifty five-mile Mulholland Scenic Parkway and Corridor is one of the most famous thoroughfares in the country. Constructed in 1924, twenty four-mile Mulholland Drive in the City of Los Angeles was envisioned by the famous Water Bureau Chief and City Engineer, William D. Mulholland, as a scenic road from the city to the mountains and beaches. The winding route starts west of the 101 freeway in Hollywood, and offers panoramic city, mountain, and ocean views. Eight miles of the Mulholland Scenic Parkway from the 405 freeway west to Woodland Hills are subject to closure. Mulholland Highway starts in the City of Calabasas and twists through the Santa Monica Mountains for approximately thirty miles to Leo Carrillo State Beach. The conservancy maintains seven scenic overlooks on Mulholland Drive.
