Nichols Canyon Neighborhood

Running from Hollywood Boulevard to Mulholland Drive, Nichols Canyon occupies a thin slice of the Santa Monica Mountains; it is the section of the Hollywood Hills sandwiched between Laurel Canyon and Runyon Canyon.

Nichols Canyon is a lot like the other canyon neighborhoods in the Hollywood Hills. Wildlife is drawn to the area in part due to spring-fed creek and less urban encroachment. The rural vibe also attracts celebrities and well-heeled residents who want the solitude of canyon living while not having to live too far from work and big city amenities.

The canyon’s bucolic charm has also inspired art. It has been used as a filming location. Authors have made the canyon a location in their stories. Rock drummer Buddy Miles wrote “Nichols Canyon Blues.”
