Park Details

8401 Mulholland Drive, Studio City

ADA Access City Views Dogs on Leash Drinking Water Filming Location Parking

Located on the north side of Mulholland Drive west of Laurel Canyon, the Nancy Hoover Pohl Overlook provides views of the San Fernando Valley, a 40-car parking lot, a physical fitness course, and access into the canyon trails below.

The overlook is named in honor of Fryman canyon resident Nancy Hoover Pohl, who for more than 60 years fought to curb development in the Santa Monica Mountains and to create local parkland. Her efforts enabled the acquisition of Fryman Canyon Park which can be accessed from the overlook, as well as Coldwater Canyon Park and Wilacre Park. Nancy Hoover Pohl was also instrumental in the establishment of the five-mile Betty B. Dearing Mountain Trail, which is also accessible from the overlook.
