Into The Wild Wednesdays: Runyon Canyon
What’s up KROQ listeners/readers, and welcome back to another edition of Into the Wild Wednesdays. Summer is just around the corner, and you know what that means…cuties in bikinis and dudes with six packs…not of beer, silly.
What better way to prepare for those stares than to soak up the sun and warm up that beach bod in the midst of the jungle that is LA/Hollywood…Runyon Canyon.
Trails: Dirt and paved, well-maintained; Difficulty varies
Distance: Approximately 3 miles (round-trip)
Elevation: 1,320 feet
Note: The trails offer minimal shade. Due to its popularity, the park can get crowded. Some areas permit dogs to be off-leash.
This park has a great sense of community, as it is filled with health-conscious locals, dog lovers, and out-of-towners. It is perhaps the most popular outdoor spot in Los Angeles because of its easy access and has something for everyone–multiple hikes, including dog-friendly trails, and even free daily yoga sessions. Don’t forget the cool sights–panoramic views, a love/peace rock circle created by visitors (check out aerial views from atop the hills), a wish/hope box, and the Runyon Canyon Ranch.
