WOW! This was quite a hike! I thought I was relatively fit, but I had to make a few rest stops. The scenery blew us away. Our daughter lives about a half a kilometre away form the canyon and hikes there on a regular basis. We loved the fact that this exquisite natural park is right in the heart of... More

It's a little crazy to realize that this amazing canyon is in the middle of a city of 3.8 million people. The hike up will definitely challenge you, but the views from the ridge are worth it. The park attracts all kinds-- from families on their morning walk to models. You really see the cross-section of the city population, because... More

What an oasis, in the middle of such a built up area! Three great walking tracks, one quite easy, one intermediate, and one, not for the feint hearted. If taking the "walking" track to the left, make sure your shoes have good tread, as the trip is thwart with sand, dirt, and small rubble that is difficult to grip on... More

You have to work for this one- no cushy touristy shortcut. Car parking is a bit of a challenge but worth the perserverance. 7km round trip hike into the HollywoodHills to some of the best views of Los Angeles. Need good walking shoes, sunnies, sunscreen and a hat We went in February on a clear sunny day- pretty hot by... More

We saw some look out points but we're unable to hike at all due to insufficient parking. We drove up and down the hill but found nothing. Gorgeous view though:)

For some reason I'm always here mostly during the summer months when it can get extremely hot out in the park. Bring some water and plenty of sunscreen so you don't burn. The views here are some of the best you will get of the downtown L.A. skyline. Perfect for pictures and gets you close to the HOLLYWOOD sign. Its... More

There are several different ways to climb Runyon. I take the hard way up, cursing the whole time, and the easy way down, making an oath to return soon. You can take your time with the climb and pretend to check out the view as you catch your breath! On a clear day, you can see from Culver City to... More

If you are near Hollywood and in need of some nature but not wanting a long drive, Runyon Canyon is for you. Offering a number of trails at varying levels of stamina required, it is a great place to get away from it all without having to drive too far. And, if you are with your four footed best friend...

Get ready to do some serious hiking! This is a wonderful way to see the Valley and experience great trails. Lots of people around so you do not feel isolated and many hikers brought their dogs. It's a gorgeous place to hike and mix with the locals!

This is a great place to hike with dogs, and it's a great place to bust your butt on some steep uphill climbs, it's also a great place to rubberneck at the random celeb if that's what you go hiking for. I don't. It's a struggle to find parking, often crowded, dog crappy, and obnoxious to hike behind people shouting... More
