I found Runyon Canyon a pleasant location to go for a hike. I was able to find (legal) parking relatively easy, which was a plus. I went mid-morning & there was a good amount of other hikers in the area. Despite a crowd of both...More

I think most people are here for celebrity spotting. If they were hiking for their health they could as easily hike at an identical spot a couple miles down the road with easy parking and trails that have not been pounded into dusty wide tracks....More

Runyon Canyon Park is a very popular hike in LA. It gets a lot of airtime on the news for all the people that park illegally. But there are a lot of people that talk it up and they love it! We decided to go...More

This is a lovely little park, close to everything, yet seeming to be in another world. Perfect for walking a well-behaved dog, and great views when it's clear. It can get pretty cruisy.

Attended Lost Angeles in February and we did this famous park. What a beautiful park! The park has free parking off the Mulholland Highway at the 90 degree turn, and you walk from there. Get there early as people will be in line for parking....More

This is a hidden gem - great recreational trail, that is long, scenic and enjoyable. It is steep though, so when using it, if you want the easy trail (as opposed to the intermediate or difficult), be sure to start at the top, and hike...More

People who live in the LA/Hollywood area come here to be in fresh air, walk on dirt paths, experience views and leave behind the rush of the city. (Yes, LA is one sprawling suburb but it comes with city and traffic pressures.) So, if you're...More

Go to the top entrance of Runyon Canyon and you can walk down the paved road to the view. Will take about 30 minutes to get to the view. There are a a couple of benches on the way down or up to rest.
