With almost half of the famous 55-mile corridor within Los Angeles, the Mulholland Scenic Parkway and Corridor offers 15 overlooks of the city, the valley, the ocean and mountains with four more that can be found on the 30 miles of road west of LA.

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority, who host these maps on their cooperative website, only give descriptions for a handful of these overlooks, but each one offers a peaceful break from driving with their beautiful views from the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.

Note: Eight miles of Mulholland Drive west of the 405 freeway towards Calabasas is unpaved and is currently closed. You can pick it up in Calabasas and drive towards the ocean at Leo Carillo State Park.
