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.

Overall rating: 

Live in Downtown or Near USC? Take the Expo Line to the Red Line all the way up to the Hollywood/Highland station - it's about a 10-15 minute walk to Runyon from there and you avoid the awful parking situation. Hint - if you DID take your car, there's a Ralph's at the VERY bottom of the Runyon trek (about a block down) where you can park unnoticed for a few hours.

Parking is very limited, suggest parking far and walk/run to the hill
