Runyon Canyon is an awesome place to visit if you're holiday takes to Hollywood. We stayed on Hollywood Blvd and the Canyon is within walking distance. The paths can be quite steep and physically demanding in parts, but the views from the top are definitely worth it. From the top you can look out to downtown LA, Century City and Hollywood immediately below you. We stayed in Hollywood recently for 3 nights and did the trek twice, it's that good. Very popular with tourists and locals alike, so be prepared to share the tracks with others.

I recently did an early evening hike here and the time could not be more perfect. Started out about 7 p.m. with a 8:08 sunset time. We had plenty of time to reach the top to take in amazing views of the Hollywood sign, downtown LA, Santa Monica and the observatory. Tips would be expect a good incline hike, bring water, good traction shoes and a hat/sunscreen. Lots of people so a very safe hike and the four legged guys are pretty well mannered here too.

Went for a Sunday morning hike, it was great to see everyone out enjoying the great outdoors, very dog friendly. Great views of LA and distant view of Hollywood sign. Gets hot so be prepared with water and choose your time of day!

One of the things I miss about living in Los Angeles is taking a hike in this incredible park to the top of the mountain where you can view the city in its immense size. Fun thing to do is watch the planes land and observe the freedom the dogs who frequent this park enjoy

We started with a nice yoga class on the front garden, you can view the schedule on the Runyon Canyon yoga Facebook page. We then went for a hike up the hill, it took about 30 mins and was seriously hot, but a great way to see the city, and good views of the Hollywood sign. A great workout too, make sure you bring water, there are fountains to fill up at the bottom. Don't park on the closest side of Hollywood Blvd - we were confused by the signs and thought it was safe to park but luckily we saw a warden who told us it was permit only, and a lot of people got tickets. We parked on Gardner.
