Run Runyon Canyon

Hollywood Bowl Overlook - Search Nearby - Added by Grant Nyquist

Run Runyon Canyon and enjoy some of the most amazing views of Los Angeles. This is a great option for an early morning workout or a sunset date hike.

Located in the Hollywood Hills, Runyon is an iconic workout run/ hike that can give you great views all the way to the ocean. There are a few different loop trails/ hikes you can take ranging from ~1.5mi to 3.25mi all with a decent amount of elevation gain. Also, remember this is Hollywood, so you might spot a celebrity or two...especially with their dogs.

All of the trails are well marked and maintained and are wide enough for multiple people, so you'll definitely not get lost.

Great views

Runyon is a great workout with great views! Parking on the other hand was a nightmare to deal with. Took over 45 min to find a spot!

Cool Scenery, Better People Watching

Great views of downtown and the valley below. Pretty cool seeing a few tv stars enjoying the trail too!

LA Views

This hike has cool panoramic views of LA and is a great option for those who don't want to venture outside of the city however it's usually extremely crowded and can get very hot as there is not much shade on the trail
