Trail was very confusing at points and covered with horse poop for the first 2.5 miles. Most of this hike is directly next to roads, but the zoo part is cool and the trails are pretty

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.

Nice view and wild flowers. There s a part where there lots of trees. Beautiful.

Great hike. Come early!!

Great trail , amazing views!

Would definitely recommend doing trail clockwise, it starts steepest but gets easier once you reach the fire road. Trail head is a bit harder to find, it’s within the gate to the direct left.

One of my new fav LA hikes! It was awesome!! Tough incline but great work out and totally worth the view!! Wear hiking boots if you can.

this is a great trail and i always come here to run.. there's different trails for everyone to be able to do from easy to hard. if ur brave enough go to the flag would be a awesome view. i can't seem to log in my workouts anymore which sucks,does anyone know why or if they have the same problem?

It's a nice place to go for a walk , not much of a hike, during summer is really nice as they have activities for kids and Yoga.. they have a lake in the middle where you can ride some small paddle boats ( they are shaped as a goose).

They have a small Cafe and can buy some snack and even some lunch.

The only thing I don't like is there is a lot of goose poop a lot, you just have a watch where you walk..
Other then that I recommend to come and visit

Moderately crowded on a Sunday late morning. The bottom part of the loop (from trailhead to Wisdom Tree to Mt Lee) is very pretty with clear trail; backtracking and heading up the loop counterclockwise the trail isn't really much of a "trail" at all. We ended up treating the bottom part of the loop like an out and back and then after getting back to the trailhead, went out and back on the first leg of the loop (clockwise) which had better trail. Overall a really nice LA hike and a good workout.

love this trail. great view once you reach the top.

Neat family friendly path with a connection to the nostalgic Batman show; https://youtu.be/xIxRC8AQeEU
Enjoy!

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.

Not very populated on Black Friday! Our first hike as a family with our 3m old. Great hike for families and we saw a few dogs too!

I have been doing this hike so many times. Today after over a year I decided to do it again. It’s hard to hike up, I recommend start making a left right next the gate? where’s the beginning of the hike. Later you can relax, get to the benches and start going down.

I highly recommend this trail, it’s beautiful and so natural. You can breath some fresh air in the end and is totally worth it.

I recommend also use good shoes for this hike, since it’s very rocky.

Got here round 730 ish not to crowded. This place just turned into my favorite hike! You gotta try this!!

Short fun hike to the top of Bee Rock, with great views en route and at the top. The first part is fairly easy on wide fire roads; the section to the top is on a steep single track, so you'll want to wear proper hiking shoes.

wow this was really fun for me since i have not been offroad riding much , this is my new spot forsure ! DOG OWNERS PLEASE PICK UP AFTER YO PUPS

Wow great hike and it lives up to the difficult rating. Be prepared with hiking boots and plenty of water I went to the left at the start and did the loop that way definitely will feel this one tomorrow.

Very ugly view. All you are looking at for the most part is barb wire....not inspiring. If you want to walk on sand and stare at barb wire in direct heat, this trail is for you.

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!

Similar to a lot of the trails at Debs Park: steady uphill on fire roads, with good views all around from the top.

I hiked what I think is this trail today, although I am having trouble reconciling the map with the description. I hiked clockwise from Mulholland to Bent Arrow to Temescal Canyon to Garapito Canyon. Bent Arrow does not follow a densely wooded creek, so there may be another trail. I did see one on the map called Bay Tree trail; however, it must be farther east on Mulholland. However, when I used GPS and compared where I was with the map, it showed where I was supposed to be. It also comes out right at Garapito. Anyway, I really enjoyed the hike. Garapito Canyon is very pretty, and would probably be quite lovely in the Spring. I think hiking this loop counterclockwise might be harder than hiking it clockwise. Otherwise it is not hard at all, if you hike at all.

Do it clockwise we did it anti and was too steep down

Home Sweet Home!!!
