Jogging trails

We stumbled across Runyon Canyon Park cos we hired an Airbnb on Franklin Ave. Neither of us are walking fanatics but we decided to take a hike. Really happy that we did because it is stunning! Well worth the trip.Take plenty of water!

Had a blast hiking throughout Runyon. Clocked over 3 miles ascending and descending. Will definitely return, we don't have views like this in Houston.

Runyon is good alternative to have to do a quick hike. Nothing too extreme, although there are several options that you can take and you can take your dog, which is great.

This is a great walk with nice views - I walked / sweated off a hangover up here. Take water as it's a bit of a climb! Good views of Hollywood Bowl and Hollywood sign / Mulholland- lots of people take dogs up there.

Spent a few days in LA and our friend recommended to visit the park. We decided to take an Uber to Mulholland drive and walk up which literally takes 5 min to the top. We managed to catch the sunset and that was INCREDIBLE. Amazing views, like you have to see it to believe it. It was getting dark and... More

Walking up here you wouldn't know you were so close to the hustle of Hollywood Boulevard. Definitely worth the effort as the views are awesome. Note on the Hollywood sign...you can see it from here but its mostly through metal fencing. You get a better unobstructed view from the Mt Hollywood trail from griffith observatory car park (see my other... More

This amazing taste of what the land looked like pre-Hollywood glam is something everyone has to do - more than once if you have the time! It's easy to navigate with most sections being paved and the well trodden gravel paths, while a bit slippery in parts on the way down, are wide enough and flat enough so you don't... More

I usually do the East Trail when I'm in LA. It's pretty steep & the steps part can be challenging but the views over the city make it worth it. They've fairly recently put in a road down which makes that part a lot easier (and a lot less hike-like if I'm honest) but the dirt climb up is still... More
