The MLS designated area for the Hollywood Hills West is bounded on the south by Sunset Blvd, on the east by the 101 Freeway, on the west past Laurel Canyon just beyond Wonderland Park Avenue], and on the North on by Mulholland Drive, then down the hill on the Valley side via Fredonia and Lankershim to the 101 Freeway at Universal City.
It includes the neighborhoods of Laurel Canyon, Mount Olympus, Nichols Canyon, Outpost Estates, the Hollywood Heights, the Hollywood Dell and Whitley Heights
Runyan Canyon Park is the place to go for your taste of nature (and let's not forget the Laurel Canyon Dog Park for Fido).
Being home to the most famous Canyon neighborhood, Laurel Canyon, Hollywood Hills West boasts a rich history. While it's counterpart, Hollywood Hills East is home to Mulholland Drive, there is no shortage of rock n roll history here, and Hollywood history there.
The Hollyridge Trail access via Beachwood Canyon is now blocked off. To get to the Trail, use instead Canyon Drive to the east. You can park your car at the trailhead and go from there. Warning: this trail is steep! If you're not up to the Hollyridge Trail via Canyon Drive, take the longer, easier hike via Brush Canyon Trail. Canyon Drive becomes Canyon Trail. Turn due west at the Mulholland Trail and you'll get to the sign. For more hiking options to the Sign, visit my facebook page and scroll down for the article I posted on this topic on April 30, 2017.
