Located off Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills, this park is especially loved by dog-lovers since they can hike with their dogs without a leash.

Great walk

Too many people though! I was interested in seeing birds and while there were good numbers they were outnumbered by humans and canines!

There are obviously great views to be found at the top but this canyon is flooded with people who bring their dogs. The bottom smells like a kennel. The parking situation is a pain in the butt ,especially on street sweeping days. There are simply better canyons like Bronson canyon, Topanga canyon or near griffith park.

This seems to be a local favourite as the trails were busy with walkers, hikers, runners and dog walkers. The hike has good views of the city and is a fun hike to people watch. Highly recommend visiting ruynan canyon if you like to be in the outdoors.

great for morning runs/hikes/views. Open dawn to dusk - great reprieve from being in work conferences all day and for getting away from the madness of Hollywood blvd

We wanted to ride our bicycles to a fictional character's home on the other side of the park. Google didn't seem to know that it's more of a hiking trail however. We made it to the top of the one hill by pushing/carrying the bikes. From the top it was ok to ride. Even though we had some surprises we... More

No joke. Other than that it is Hipster Central in spandex. A pick up bar in Nike's. Tinder on a dog leash. Grindr on hands and knees. Be careful you don't get your car towed though, or when they say 'Do you want to come home with me?' they might really just be trying to be nice because you are... More

Great workout for about 20 minutes. You can really start to pant on the way up! Pretty chill on the way down. Wear shoes with traction since it can be easy to slip in the dirt.

If you like the smell of dog poop then this is the park for you. Great place to go hiking, but lots of dogs and people who don't pick up after them.
