too many people.

it's a nice long trek. it isn't really that hard just long.

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

Just finished this hike, did get turned around a few times as there are a lot of other trails that splinter off, but once we got to the cave it was really neat definitely want to come back and explore more.

Consistent, moderate incline to peak. Went at sunset after two days of rain-was clear and beautiful. Great 360 views at peak plus a lockbox with a notebook where you can jot something down. Out & back is just about 4 miles. You’ll crack a sweat, but not too strenuous.

fun, finally gets steep towards the top.

CLOSED: Went up there today to see what condition it was in. The park ranger told me it would be closed for about another week, as the threat of mudslides is too great with forthcoming weather and downed trees that need to be removed from the trail.

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 views and a nice incline. Extremely crowded.

Trail is heavily utilized and well-maintained. Park Rangers were actually on the trail in a truck during the venture.
The overwhelming odor of horse droppings all along the trail make this trail a "2!"
The iconic sign is worthy of some pics, but since it's a 6 mile journey out and back, best to prepare for the odor.
Wouldn't traverse again.

We have hiked this trail many times and loved it every time. Unfortunately the Woolsley Fire burned the trail.

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.

Love this hike, it’s a great challenge, has some seriously beautiful lookouts and is typically a low crowd. The rock is really cool and it takes a Little Rock scrambling but very doable. Hiking boots recommended. Bring water and keep track of trail bc it’s not clearly marked in some spots.

Great hike with wonderful views of DTLA.
Hollywood sign right there to take it all in.
First couple of miles will have you huffing and puffing as it’s a pretty steep incline.
After that you’ll be treated to the views on your way to the sign.
Enjoy!

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.

Only 2.5 miles up to the peak if you just want a good view (5mi round trip).

Great hike on the main trail into Sandstone Peak- gradual ascent, some minor scrambling, not too many rocks. Wonderful views across to Channel Islands from Sandstone, but a lot of scrambling and sharp rocks to get there- great for the experience, but not something to repeat often.

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.

New to Southern California and couldn't seem to find a hike comparable to those in Oregon. However, this trail changed everything. I did the whole loop and took the detour out to Tri peaks (which i'd highly recommend). The trail is diverse and has the most amazing views almost the entire time. Loved every second of this trail and I'd HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking to get out on a good hike.

exellent!

Loved every step of this hike! Gorgeous views.

Good for baby’s first hike. Shady enough.

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.
