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.

I hike Runyon a few times a week... but that's because i live right there. If you want to take the "hike" you've seen in countless movies, you'll have a great time. On a clear day you can see from downtown to the ocean and visibility is always best after a good rain. On an average day, you can see... More

Drove up the hill to Runyon Canyon Park. Hiked a couple of the hills for about an hour. It was great to see so many different people get up there to get some exercise. Would definitely recommend it if you feel like being healthy! Definitely go early in the morning before the sun starts beaming down (we went around 8-9am... More

After braving the crowds along Hollywood Boulevard and the Walk of Fame, we walked 2 blocks North to Runyon Canyon entrance. The trail runs in a loop that starts near street level and raises up to the top of the canyon. It was a pretty good workout for us but there were joggers and a few mom's pushing strollers. Once...

We were on an extended vacation during Late June 2014 and enjoy staying active and seeing new and different places. We had heard that parking can be fierce here so we decided to get their relatively early and go during the workweek while others were hopefully at work. We arrived shortly after breakfast, and went to the Mulholland Drive entrance... More

Great hike to get fit and see views of the city. Keep in mind there's a few entrances, each higher and higher. Parking is easier to find midway up the hike where there is a parking lot, otherwise its tricky finding a spot in the residential streets. Regardless its still a fair hike up!

Wherever I go -- city, town, wilderness -- I always seek out great places to hike and bike. I wasn't disappointed in Hollywood, when I found this park on the map just a few blocks from the busiest part of Hollywood. Take Hollywood Blvd. west to La Brea Ave., then north to Franklin and a block west to Fuller, where... More

My husband and I spent a few hours hiking here and loved it. The trails are good for people of moderate abilities. It was HOT so be sure to pack lots of water. We got very dusty too, so make sure a shower is soon to follow when you're all done. The hiking itself was great. Lots of little trails... More
