Runyon Canyon is an extremely popular hiking trail with great views of the Hollywood Hills. It is a great place to go for a quick hike to see the Hollywood sign or the views from Inspiration Point and Clouds Rest. This is also a great area for dog owners as there are plenty of off leash areas. 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. Tennis shoes or running shoes recommended. There are a few water fountains but due to the sunny nature of the hike, you should bring a water bottle as well.

I am happy to check this one off the list, but probably won't be back. Parking was difficult, lots of dog poop, intense smell of dog urine at a few spots, crowded on trails, but some spots with good views and benches to sit and take it in.

Perfect for an early fall day. Views and hike is almost worth the drive from Orange County

This is a nice, quick hike with great views of the city. One side is paved and the other side is a bit strenuous with steep "steps". There are a lot of people and dogs on the trail, so it's very busy which makes parking a bit tough.
