One of my go-to hiking places in the area whenever a friend or relative from out of town is visiting LA!

Short, relatively easy hike that is essentially a big loop.

- Dog/pet friendly
- At the entrance, there are snacks, water, energy drinks, and more available for purchase via the honor system
- Pretty views of DTLA, Hollywood, LA...
- Hike is short, only takes ~1 hour even if you are a slower walker
- Cute gate you can place your own personal lock if you like to! (See pictures)

- Very difficult to find parking (street parking only)
- Depending on the time of day/week, LOTS of people (but that's the beauty of being in LA, right?)
- No shade

Overall, a fun place to take anyone, a pet, an acquaintance, a friend. I feel like this is a must-do hike in LA. Check it out to see what you think!

Beautiful hike with excellent views of the city. A couple different hiking options depending on skill level. Walking the access road is the easiest. Taking the trail up to the right side past the dog park has some steep steps to climb, but doable. If you want to hike trail all the way to the peak, beware on the downward return lots of loose sand and gravel, easy to slip— recommend hiking boots for this section.

Can be pretty crowded, especially on weekends. Lots of dogs and non in leech even it's required by the park rules. Some pretty challenging trails and also one with pavement starting from Fullerton entrance. Parking can be pain in the *ss.

Awesome place to hike. It can be as easy or challenging as you want it to be. You can take a short stroll and see some awesome views of LA and you can walk for miles. Love this place

Highly trafficked but enjoyable trail, if you want to avoid the crowds take the dirt trails. Bring shoes with ample grip, the trail can and will get pretty dry and loose.

Beautiful canyon trails. Weekends are especially busy. Parking is not good for the Fuller St entrance. I had to walk 20 min from my parking spot to get to the entrance.

Nice place to hike around for an afternoon. We took the path going around in a loop, and it was mostly easy except for one short steep stretch that most people seem to struggle with at least a bit. Some nice scenery though, and you can see the Hollywood Sign in the distance.

Came here for a nice hike while visiting Los Angeles and wanted nice views of the city. Parking was a challenge as there's very limited street parking near the Mulholland Drive entrance, but it's possible I didn't know the best places to park.

The hike and views were amazing. Luckily, there wasn't too much smog and could see the city, the Griffith, the Hollywood sign, etc...The trails were nice and wide and people were generally friendly. There's several different paths you can take with some being paved and other dirt & gravel. Regardless of chose paths, each had nice views of the different landmarks. There were many places if you wanted to rest or just take pictures. Very nice relaxing way to view the city and get a nice hike in.

Was looking for a good not so long hike while visiting LA and this was the first thing I found on google. I was not disappointed! There were quite a few people on the trail even though I went around 9am on a Monday morning, but I guess that’s to be expected in LA! As for parking, there are tons of free spots on the streets around the entrance to the park around Fuller. If you can get dropped off, that would of course make it easier but it’s not necessary at all. Did the big loop and it wasn’t too bad! Definitely had some steep parts to get the legs burning but was worth it for the views of the city and even the Hollywood sign with beautiful homes in the hills. Definitely would come back and bring a dog so that I can fit in ;)

If you haven't heard of Runyon Canyon then you either never hike or just got to LA. I hadn't been in a long time vmbut was just chatting about Runyon with a friend and felt inspired to go back. It is a good, medium length hike from the base to the highest elevation you can reach. I took a few extra paths and went for about 7 miles.

If you are not a fan of off leash dogs, then this isn't a great option. Even though signs instruct folks to keep the dogs on a leash, the locals treat it like a giant dog park. Also, it is a popular hike since its easy to get to from all of Hollywood so it gets pretty busy.
