Runyon Canyon Park – Amazing view but a tricky trek!

Runyon Canyon is convenient to get to and offers great views of the city. It is quite popular, so you will not be alone on this hike. We entered the park from the top, the park opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. We took the walk along the trail all the way to the bottom which took us about 35 minutes. It’s quite steep going down but such amazing views. The trails themselves are clearly defined and made of a compact gravel, although there are some points coming East to West where it can get a bit gnarly. Sneakers are fine, but if you want to play it safe, hiking boots aren’t a bad idea. The trail is exposed so wear sunscreen and plenty of water. The fire path is easy underfoot, and a good option for those who don't like coming down hills on a dirt track. Parking can be a bit hard in the area, there is no parking lot. There is tons of free street parking but please make sure to read all the signs, a lot of streets have restrictions and you will get a parking ticket.
