I had wanted to hike Runyon in October 2015 but my friend and I couldn't find time, so we made it a priority for my recent visit. Unfortunately a few things outside of our control got in the way of our hike so we didn't get all the way to the top. Note that on Mondays one side of the... More

This was a fantastic outdoor activity to do while in LA. Before we started our hike we took an outdoor yoga class that we found on Facebook and it was fantastic and based on tips. You'll want to block at least three hours to hike both mountains but time to stop and take pictures and take in the views. There... More

Hiked Runyon canyon yesterday while visiting friends. The trail we chose was very scenic, but did have some steep inclines. Will try it again once my legs recover!

The view over looking LA is amazing! There are 2 trails an easy and a hard. It is super busy so safe to do alone, with partner or with friends. Parking around the area is tricky and parking inspectors are always around so be sure to check the signs or park on the other side of Sunset blvd and make... More

Took the intermediate-level trail to top of canyon, on recommendation of one of the servers at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel restaurant. I had 70 degree temp and cloudless sky, so weather was definitely cooperating. Entrance to trail is short walk from hotel, then trail begins. If you don't want dirt and rock trail, you can take the paved trail, which I... More

It's free and it offers breathtaking views of LA. What more could you ask for? It was a great workout and wonderful experience.

Parking can be a little tricky but once you arrive at the trail it's beautiful. We went on a Saturday morning and it was busy but it was no problem. We stopped and thoroughly enjoyed the scenery along the way. The last part of the trail was very challenging as you literally had to use your hands to climb up... More

This is a very popular spot for hiking. I would recommend getting out there no later than 10am. You'll want to be done with your hike before the heat of the day begins. Parking can be tough so that's another reason to get there early.

The park is very easy to spot and directions are clear. There are many trails to choose from and all of them offer panoramic views of downtown LA and surrounding areas.
