Mulholland Highway to Stunt Road & Tuna Canyon
Mulholland Highway is a scenic road in Los Angeles County, California, that runs approximately 50 miles through the western Santa Monica Mountains from the near US Route 101 (Ventura Freeway) in Calabasas to Highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) near Malibu at Leo Carrillo State Park and the Pacific Ocean coast – at the border of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. Mulholland Highway, the western rural portion, is a scenic route named after William Mulholland and built throughout the 1920s “to take Angelenos from the city to the ocean”.
Wholly contained within Los Angeles County, the scenic byway was formally opened in 1928. Mulholland zigzags through the Santa Monica Mountains – one of the Southern California Transverse Ranges, from Oxnard all the way to Hollywood. Original major intersections included Topanga Road, Cornell Road, Latigo Canyon Road, and Decker Road.
The route provides access, directly or en route, to many of the regional parks in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.
Unlike Kanan-Dume Road and Malibu Canyon Road, Mulholland Highway makes its way through the mountains without benefit of tunnels. There are several automobile wrecks and fire-burnt structures that litter the bottom on the canyons through which Mulholland Highway passes. The native flora of the Santa Monica Mountains are seen throughout the scenic route. More from Wikipedia
