A good morning workout!

Good trails, lots of options for different routes.

Got there at 6am on the money. Just me and a few other people. Not a bad hike! Can’t wait to do this again! But yeah get there early was leaving around 8ish and it was starting to get packed!! Still worth the wait. The views were amazing!

too many people.

great trail for all! not overcrowded but lots of pups!

We have been doing Runyon Canyon because we live on an easy access block. Every once in a while we need change the scenery so we drive 15 minutes and do something touristy and easy for us to get off the bucket. This hike is everything that is described in the description as far as we are concerned as locals. Very enjoyable.

fun, finally gets steep towards the top.

The Mulholland side of this hike is my favourite! I love being able to see the ocean from the top :)

I love this hike!

Perfect for a quick evening hike. We left at 4:30pm and was back in our car by 5:30. This included stopping for pictures.

Very beautiful sites and paved trail on the easy route. Very steep entrance into the trails.

Great hike. Come early!!

Great views and a nice incline. Extremely crowded.

Don't come here if you want a mtb ride they aren't permitted here but nice for views

Love this hike, it’s really fun for families with little kids bc it’s not too long and waters are fun to splash and swim in. Usually it’s got a nice crowd but plenty of space to spread out. Direct sunlight for most of the hike so bring water and a hat. Go during spring for the wildflowers.

Great hike, got to do it with a friend on a cloudy day. Both eleavtion and distance turned out to be more than the plan said. We both brought 3 literally of water, but could have used more. The view of the water was gorgeous.

Good trail run. Easy to maneuver, lightly trafficked.

Went on it today was pretty easy but had a great time and saw such wonderful views

After 13 years of living in LA I have finally have crossed doing the Runyon hike off my bucket list. It's not necessarily that I was avoiding it, it's just I hate going deep into Hollywood and getting stuck in traffic going back to the Westside. Anyways, this place is GREAT for quick workout. You can walk the trail but you will see alot of people jogging/running, and also doing random exercises. There's usually a good amount of people on this trail and the conversations that you overhear can be so Hollywood and hilarious. I can tell alot of Hollywood entertainment professionals frequent here. This place is very dog friendly as you will notice. Once you get to the top, there is a decent sized park where people sit on the benches and play with their dogs. If I lived in the area I could see myself doing this hike during the week after work. Lots of eye candy here too if you know what I mean.

If you are a looking for a "serious" hike, I wouldn't recommend this but this is a good workout and fun hike that is right in the city.

Moderate intensity but views are totally worthy! We started at 10:00 am and was a little hot. I recommend to start earlier, because the round trip takes about 4 hours if you stop to take pictures and the sun is really strong while going back. Otherwise, amazing!!!

Moderate hike with rewarding 360 views. Very cool caves to take a nap and or meditate. Read signs when parking, the locals will guide you via signs. I will be back, no dogs allowed is the only bummer but understood.

It was a nice trail. I set out at 7:30 a.m and finished it in 2 hours. Carry water and sunscreen!

exellent!

Very accessible, but not overwhelmingly great. Didn't feel like I was very removed from LA. Residential area and decent amount of people for a Tuesday afternoon.

If you can’t get out to real wilderness this will do in a pinch, it’s a pretty easy trail, but it is VERY crowded and parking is a joke.

Love this hike. Can be super packed on the weekends so come during the week during the middle of the day. Beautiful little oasis at the bottom of the falls. Don't walk across the reeds and cattails just let nature be and respect it from a distance :)

I really enjoyed this hike, the ascent is gradual, the trail is wide enough, and the vistas are amazing.

Too many people who spend all morning putting on their face to go hiking. This hike seems more like a fake stars map tour then a hike
