Barbara A. Fine Overlook at the Summit
11801 Mulholland Drive, Studio City
Located on the north side of Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills on the Mulholland Scenic Parkway, this developed overlook is named for local conservationist, Barbara A. Fine who was instrumental in the preservation of the scenic views of Mulholland Drive. With a large paved parking area, the overlook features a short trail to viewpoints with stunning views of the upper fork of Fryman Canyon, the San Fernando Valley, the Simi Hills, and the San Gabriel Mountains.
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 that would transport city dwellers to the mountains and beaches. The winding route starts west of the 101 Freeway in Hollywood, and offers panoramic city, mountain, and ocean views.
