Runyon Canyon Park – Fuller Ave. Entrance

Runyon Canyon Park – Fuller Ave. Entrance

Runyon Canyon Park is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Los Angeles and often shows up on publishers’ lists of best hikes in LA.

This 130-acre dog park is located in Hollywood on the east end of the Santa Monica Mountains, providing hikers with a few overlapping loops and great views over Hollywood.

For a quick Runyon Canyon hike, try a 1.65-mile loop with 500 feet of elevation gain, or get more of a workout on a larger 2.65-mile loop with 700 feet of elevation gain. To really stretch your legs, extend things even further for a 3.25-mile hike with 800 feet of elevation gain.

This is a crowded park, so if you are a trail snob expecting peace and quiet, Runyon Canyon probably isn’t for you. If you are just looking for a bit of outdoor exercise with added people watching, Runyon Canyon is perfect.

Runyon Canyon is officially a dog park and has off-leash areas where canines run free.
