San Vicente Mountain Park
Remnants of the Cold War Nike-Ajax anti-aircraft base furnish aeriel views of the city, ocean, mountains and valley. Quite impressive. There’s also a self-guided tour around the park.
While the history is fun, San Vicente Mountain is most often visited for its convenient location at the edge of paved Mulholland. Hikers, mountain bikers, and nature seekers can access dirt Mulholland and the mountains beyond from San Vicente’s parking lot.
