Wonderful hike, but we kept going and going, and before I knew it we had to hike up some pretty steep hills and then come back down. The views were worth it! Sad to see all of the smog that looms over the city. Being from the midwest it was quite a shock. They need better transportation in that city... More

Maybe not five stars because it can be a little dry. But I love to bring my dog and hike Runyon Canyon. It's pretty friendly and a good workout. Not the best, but very good. Fun to go with friends, too.

It is a tough walk uphill but when you get there the view of the entire LA basin is incredible.. Go with someone who can point out the high points.

We went because I've always wanted to hike a canyon plus I heard it's a good celebrity spotting site. No celebrities; but a great workout. There were lots of people walking and hiking which made me feel safer.

Very nice park with some challenging terrain (going up/down the east side?). The trail goes from loops from east to west and was a lot of fun. The views of the hills, city and Hollywood sign were very nice. Parking may be a little difficult. We went in the morning and were able to find a spot on the street... More

As many of you know this trail is popular with the celebrity crowd so it tends to draw more people than it might otherwise. With that said it is still a very nice hike and I like the fact that there are different trails to choose from depending on your level of conditioning/desired effort. Those of you that have dogs...

We left the Hollywood to do this instead and we were so happy when we got here. The hike around the mountains is alot of fun and once to get up to the top, the view of Los Angeles is just amazing. The city is sooo huge. Well worth getting sweaty for the view!

My partner and I were so pleased that we visited Runyon Canyon. A challenging but enjoyable walk with great scenery over the large city and beautiful houses in the hills. A popular dog walking spot too. Highly recommended!

Amazing to me that there are these incredible trails to hike right in the middle of L.A. Great views with a mountain getaway feel. It was busy with lots of other hikers, but I think this is good for safety--who wants to be alone in a deserted park in a big city? My friend decided to see the sites on... More

Yes, the views are amazing, you can take great pics and get in a workout. They have yoga on the lawn near the entrance Saturdays at 10 a.m. I believe. There's usually someone selling snacks & water near the entrance. Yes, it's possible that you might have a celebrity sighting while there (I've had 2). But, here are some things... More
