Runyon Canyon

If you ask an LA local what they are doing on the weekend, chances are the answers will almost always be the same.

“Hiking Runyon.”

Indeed, hiking in LA would not be complete with trying Runyon Canyon. It is one of the most popular Hollywood activities to do and while the city is often known for its lavish parties and celebrity concentration, one of its best weekend daytrips might also be its healthiest.

Runyon Canyon stretches across 160 acres and is adjacent to the Hollywood strip. Not only is it the home of some of the best hiking trails on the planet, but it also offers some of the most breathtaking views in the world.

There is a dog park available for your four-legged friend and as if catering to Fido isn’t enough, there are free yoga classes available with professional instructors.

In addition, the odds are likely that you will run into somebody famous on your hike as the Canyon is open to all and is a luxurious option for any and all. Many describe Runyon as “being better than a gym” and its convenient Fuller street entrance means that it doesn’t take a long drive to experience it.

If you decide to take the plunge and make it a weekend destination, we advise you to pack three must-have Runyon items:

1. A camera
2. A bottle of water
3. A picnic

With that, you’ll be all set for one of the best Weekendtrips you can take while surfing the City of Angels.
