This can be a fairly difficult hike due to loose ground and the potential to slip on the descent.

This is a quick hike to see the Hollywood sign or views from Inspiration Point and Clouds Rest. This is also a great area for dog owners as there are plenty of off-leash areas. Users say don’t expect to have the trail to yourself and plan time for finding street parking. The southern entrance to the park is located at the north end of Fuller Avenue. Due to the sunny nature of the hike, hikers recommend bringing a water bottle as well. There are water fountains in case you need to fill up. Show more

If you are hiking Runyon Park for the views then this hike is for you. You will have three fantastic views of the park. Indian Rock is a lesser-known point in the park. It is the highest point at an elevation of 1320'. Bagging this high point should be a delightful prize for any summit bagging enthusiast.Show more
