    North of the Upper Franklyn Canyon Reservoir, you'll find Glastonberry Grove and other Twin Peaks filming locations. If it's a nice day for a picnic, have one like James & Donna, or Audrey & Jack!

    Located in the serene hills off Mulholland between Sherman Oaks and Beverly Hills, this secluded park boasts ponds, wildflowers, old-growth trees, and storybook-cute wildlife.

    Great spot to picnic and relax. Mind the speed limit, 15mph - people, children and dogs enjoying a peaceful walk. :) STOP fully at stop signs or risk ticket!!!

    The lake here is where they shot the opening for the Andy Griffith show with a tiny Ron Howard. See if you can find the hidden pond with fish.

    The park rangers are super uptight about speeding. And yes, those camera enforced stop signs actually work.

    Ask Ranger Joel about the trails and the animals. He gives great advice. The Hastain Trail is wonderful with great views!

    I do my "walking children in nature" walks here. I'm familiar with the flora & fauna because I teach kids about nature... poison oak (leaves of three, let it be!) -Tammie Brown, RuPaul's Drag Race
