We came here based on the recommendation of a co-worker who had visited the area in the past. I'd never heard of Runyon Canyon before or did any research before we went hiking, let me tell you this place was excellent and would go again in a heartbeat. BRING WATER!!!! As others pointed out, there is no parking at the... More

it seemed like anyone who wanted to get fit in downtown LA was here at Runyon Park. We were there for a stroll, but from the likes of it, there were two types of park users. the fitness guys, and the non leash dog walkers. everywhere you look, beautiful ladies keeping themselves in shape. we did a half hour walk...

I've read a lot over the years about hiking up runyon canyon and it's certainly something I've always wanted to do. I read up about it before my trip and was aware of the different entrances and routes. Unfortunately on this visit time was not on my side and I couldn't hike from the bottom as I would have liked...

Runyon Canyon has a beautiful path to hike on. This is not for the beginner, or the mid-westerner. Well, I was able to handle it, but was expecting a path that had some shade and a place to picnic. This isn't that kind of park. I wouldn't recommend bringing a dog. This is a hike for fit people that like... More

Maybe it's because I'm not a city girl and was raised in a more rural area, but this was not a 'hike'. so so dusty and the views of LA just make you realize how polluted it is. there were a lot of people slipping on the steep areas of the trail because it was so dry. apart from this,... More

I went with some friends and it was worth it even though it was summer and super hot. The trails are nice and really good to exercise or just have a nice view of the city! Totally recommended specially if you are close to the walk of fame and want to do something fun without spending a penny...just make sure... More

I'd like to start off by saying that I am a fairly advanced hiker, and that the more advanced trails were the perfect challenge. I do have some advice; 1. Wear a hat, there is barely any shade of there and it's extremely hot, and the sun is powerful. 2. Bring lots of water, I'm so happy I did or... More

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of LA, a short drive to this Park will do just fine. It's a gentle hike with some great views. Parking is available as it a port-a-potty.

This is a great place for a fun nice morning run/hike. Gorgeous views and lots of fellow hikers! The earlier in the day you go the cooler it will be. Make sure to bring water with you, I didn't notice any water fountains on the trail.

First time at Runyon, very easy hike, pet and kid friendly. Will definetely go back for more, but next time without the grand daughter. I loved the hike, it was moderate, but pushing a stroller uphill is no fun at all. Did enjoy over all.
