I visited during midday and it was boiling. Great weather (as usual) and there's opportunity to view whole of LA and surrounds plus also vantage point for LA on the north side. There's a marathon track for 'casuals' and a steeper rockier climb for the...More

It’s a gem and it’s free! Skip the tour bus. You don’t have to have fancy hiking gear... just a good pair of sneakers and take your time coming down (especially with kids). Spectacular views of LA!

In particular, beware the female Australian dog-walker who has 10 dogs, most of them off leash even in the mandatory on-leash areas. I saw her coming with her unruly pack, and pulled my dog, who was on a leash, off the path and made him...More

Not hard to find, but parking was! Ended up getting lucky and found a close spot. The walk up alone is steep. There were bottles of water set out for a dollar. Once in there was a map. We took many pictures. Seems a lot...More

Go to the top entrance of Runyon Canyon and you can walk down the paved road to the view. Will take about 30 minutes to get to the view. There are a a couple of benches on the way down or up to rest.
