Very beautiful and a spectacular view of LA. It was very warm so bring water and personally would recommend sun protection!

Great hike with awesome city views. Parking is very difficult. Get their early or take an Uber!

It’s a good trail just crowded at times because it’s a heavy tourist attraction but either way it’s a great workout and pet friendly

Beautiful hike! Wildflowers were in bloom making this extra nice. I went on a foggy morning but definitely prepare to be exposed to the sun. Some steep rocks near the peak but that doesn’t last long. Highly recommend for nearly all levels.

Beautiful views, beautiful people, steep trail on the way up makes it an easy way back. Very peaceful and energizing!

A very good trail for your training. That said, the parking around the park is a bit of a challenge on the weekends. The trail is actually a very large dog park so you will run into many people and their dogs especially on a weekend. It's actually a bit over crowded and some dog owners don't pick up after their dogs which is a turn off. That said the trail does offer a good workout and you can transition over to a road that leads up to excellent views of the surrounding area. Because it is a dog park there are water fountains around but I recommend having a hydration pack with you. Just be aware you either need to get there early or be prepared to drive around looking for parking.

Great hike but no where to park on weekends!

up hill is challenging in a good way, but down hill is slippery and not safe. Not very safe for dogs, but lots of dogs there.

This was my first time to Runyon canyon, I love that so many people take time out of their days to go on this hike , that was a great thing to see. There are some parts where you have to make your own trail, but other than that it is pretty much an average hike and what I mean by that is you can run up and and down these hills which is awesome , there are some other parts where it is not safe to do so but your judgement will let you know. Overall great hike !

great hike we did in family. my 6 yo son did not complain. also the view is nice.

Great paved hike, you can’t get lost and you have a scenic view of the city while hiking.
