Probably the most famous road in California, its proximity to Los Angeles has made it the playground of the rich and famous. Jay Leno is a frequent visitor to The Rock Store with his collection of vintage cars and bikes.
The road connects “the valley”, a large suburban area to the north, with the beach area just north of the rich and famous Malibu. This area is home to many of the best roads in So Cal, but most enthusiasts spend their time on “The Snake”, a short 21 turn section just above the popular Rock Store. The Snake is heavily photographed on weekends and attracts those looking to showboat a bit for the cameras. “Edwards’ Corner”, the final turn heading up The Snake, is a popular spot for people to congregate and watch others come up the hill. Probably the most famous incident on The Snake is this motorcycle vs bicycles video from 2013.
During the motorcycle boom of the 1980’s CHP crackdowns on motorcycle racing put a wet blanket on riding in the area, but budget cuts since then have kept enforcement to a minimum.

A short section of Mulholland Hwy directly above The Rock Store that is a favorite place for local motorcyclists, drivers, and cyclists to test their skills against the road. Heavily congested on weekends, but a wonderful ride during the week.

Up in The Snake area of Mulholland (right above The Rock Store) are a group of people that shoot photos on weekends. Their photos are exemplary. If you want to get a great photo of yourself in action, ride or drive Mulholland right above The Rock Store on just about any weekend, then check their flickr page for your photo.
