Description

Added by The Outbound Collective

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.

Reviews

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

Runyon Will Be Closed From April 1st to July 31st!

Guess we can thank social media for the outburst of this canyons popularity. From Rihanna to The Game you don't know who you'll see on these trails. If you're more about the scene then the scenery, this spot is for you my friend!
