I wasn't expecting much from this urban hike. and was pleasantly surprised. There are 3 main routes through the canyon: easy medium and hard. Hard involves steep, dusty trails but also the best views in the park. All three are dog-friendly. Im a fairly avid hiker, and did about 4 miles in this park in 2 hours wearing sneakers, jeans...

This was a great hike and had beautiful views the whole way up. We took the steep way up, and it was a good way to break a sweat. Once getting to the top we started taking the longer, less steep way back down, but ended up exploring more trails. Spent an entire afternoon hiking around Runyon. Definitely recommend if... More

A friend and I were visiting from San Diego, and we had never hiked Runyon Canyon. Wow-what amazing views on this clear sunny day! The hiking is medium difficulty, or easy if you stay on the paved areas.

This hike can be as easy or as competitive as you want it to be. The shorter route takes about 45 minutes. If you want to go all the way to the top, expect about 2 1/2 hours. It is totally worth it! Beautiful views and a good possibility of a celeb sighting. If you start up the right side,... More

While visiting L.A., I would recommend making a morning out of driving Mulholland Drive and going to Runyon Canyon for a hike. Be prepared though, as parking can be a problem. There is a small lot and we had to wait a bit for someone to leave to get a spot. It was a longer trail than we expected if... More

This trail is great if you are a dog lover. If you are not, then I would not recommend this hike for you since most dogs are off leash and you can be bothered by them. Most of them are well behaved and won't bother you, but my friend got caught up as he was running up the trail in... More

Great hike and view I suggest wearing good shoes. On the way down the canyon it has an extreme slope and you can fall. There also a lot of dogs out on a nice day so if you have a problem with dogs being off leash this might not be for you
