Widely considered one of the best. Excellent turns, scenery, and no traffic. Mostly medium-large sweepers with smaller turns mixed in and a medium tunnel where you can pick up some speed from a stop. The road is a treasure and has excellent flow, gently nudging you to go faster and faster. Often has partial closures due to land slides.

Very famous, especially for a (currently closed - 2/26/20) section called The Snake and nearby Rock Store. The 7 miles west of CA 23 is currently closed due to construction, but easily passable. It has delightfuly smooth medium curves back and forth over a wide 1.5 lane blacktop, which is rather relaxing, even at a quick pace. The Snake is currently closed, but accessible if you're brave. It has superb small and medium turns with nice views and scenery. The rest of Mulholland is pretty relaxing with enjoyable sweepers through a semi-populated area.

Eastern 15 miles is good tight to medium turns. The next 13 miles is straight but with extreme rolling hills, it feels like a roller coaster. Go fast enough and you'll catch some air. West of that is fairly straight and calm with big sweepers. Scenery is typical for the central valley. Connects with Bitterwater Rd
