Hike one of the most uber popular hikes on the west coast. Just mins outside from downtown Los Angeles and close to West Hollywood is the 2.7 mile loop. Pro tip When you go to Runyon Canyon Park, remember that there is one entrance at the top of the park in the North area and two entrances at the bottom of the park in the South. I usually start at one of the bottom entrances so my hike begins with a climb and ends with a descent. When you start your hike at the bottom of the park you will need to choose if you hike the trail clockwise or counter-clockwise.
