This is one of the most popular hiking spots in LA. It was temporarily closed from 4/1/16 - 7/31/16 for pipe repair work, but reopened as of Tuesday, August 2nd. Because the park was closed for a while, rattlesnakes and coyotes have come back into the park. If you have a small or medium sized dog, please consider putting them on a leash in Runyon.

The trail was decent. Moderate too difficult climbs depending where you start. There were pretty good views of Hollywood. The bads are there are little to no bathrooms and parking is horrendous. I recommend Hellman in Whittier it's comparable with out the crowds.

Not a tough hike but great views of the city. Dogs can go off leash as long as they are well behaved. Can get pretty busy on the weekends.

Easy to get to and can't get lost. Always smells like dog pee and will get your fair share of people talking on cell phones.

Beautiful view. I like the option of paved trail vs. dirt as well as Varying difficulties to climb.
Donation based Yoga at the bottom is lovely.

Lots of dogs off leashes. If thats not your thing, beware.
