Mulholland Drive is a favorite road for locals and tourists alike. Its length and many scenic pull offs make it an ideal way to see the city and valley from a different and higher vantage point. When you’re itching to get into the car to take a long and beautiful ride, make the journey to Nancy Hoover Pohl Overlook.
This pull-off and scenic overlook was named for Nancy Hoover Pohl, a local that fought to stop development in the Santa Monica Mountains for many years. The overlook leads to several trails and a fitness course. Many visitors of the area say that the hikes that start at this pull off are beautiful at any time of year, with plenty of shade and opportunities to view native wildlife. There are no restrooms or water available, so plan ahead.
Taking Mulholland Drive is always a pleasure, but when you have a set goal, you can enjoy the journey that much more. The Nancy Hoover Pohl Overlook is located on the north side of the road and has a large parking lot to accommodate many visitors. If coming from the 101, the overlook is the third you will encounter, and the sixth from the 405. View a map of Mulholland Drive to ensure you know your way.
A drive as beautiful as Mulholland deserves an equally exquisite machine like a 2014 E350 Sport Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. Ensure that your journey through the canyons is as smooth and intricate as the road you’ll be traveling.
