Favorite place to jog and sightsee

This place is great! So many different trails available to walk or run. The views are simply fantastic, you see all of LA and even better is done right before sunset.

WOW! What a vigorous hike with fantastic views of LA! We hiked up the east path (Inspiration Point...also known as Star Trail??) and came down on the paved road and then hiked up the west path (West Ridge Hiking Trail..also known as Hero Trail??) and looped around on the "bridge" and stairs to come down the paved road a second...

The park seemed like a great place to exercise with all the hills. Great views. However, there were too many dogs running around off leashes. Even though the sign says dogs must be on leashes people do not obey and the rules are not enforced. Everybody is not a "dog person" I left because of this and really didn't get... More

Runyon Canyon is one of the best running spots in LA area. Great dog friendly park as well with some of the best mannered dogs you'll find. Get in for a sunrise run or hike if possible for some amazing views of the city and of course HWood sign. Park is open from sunrise to sunset. Whether you're running or... More

Drove my daughter to go hiking here, gorgeous views of the valley and Hollywood sign. All locals, many with their dogs. There is no fence and it seems parts of the path slide off the mountain! Bring comfortable shoes and water. And your camera.

This is the best place to escape the noisy and crowded walk of fame. Just a few minutes away from the walk of fame you will find this Little paradise. Whether you just want to walk or run, here you are right. And if you are lucky you will spot some stars here

Runyon Canyon offers some spectacular views of LA and is easily accessible. There are a few different pathways with various levels of difficulty, but no path is really challenging. It's definitely a nice place to go for a light trail and take in the view, but be aware that parking can be a struggle.

The canyon is very accessible from the city and it's a good workout to get to the view point. It can be busy which is great if you're by yourself as it feels safe, but if you want somewhere quieter there are better places to hike in the area.

I lover Runyon Canyon. It is even better now that part of the walk is paved. Bring you dog - dogs roam leash free - but pick up after it! If you do the whole trail it can be challenging, but it is certainly not impossible for even those of us getting up in years. You get exercise and great... More

By far, one of my favorite places in LA. It's not just a great hike, but a wonderful place to broaden your horizons. The view at the top will remind you why it is called "The City of Angels". And the amazing Rock Circle is a mysterious and beautiful vortex to unwind and manifest. There is yoga there and dogs... More
