Runyon Canyon dog park is a GREAT hike in Hollywood, CA allowing dogs off-leash. I take Eli a few times a week, gives us both a great workout.
About Runyon Canyon
Runyon Canyon Dog Park is 130 acres, just two blocks from Hollywood Blvd at Vista with another entrance north on Mulholland Drive. Official entrances are on Fuller, Vista St, and off Mulholland.
The park has a wide fire road running up from the Vista entrance, as well as more demanding trails taking the walker up to a number of magnificent viewpoints. From these the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory can be seen to the east. Downtown (7 miles away to the south east). Park La Brea and Wilshire Boulevard (3 miles) and the Baldwin Hills which obscure LAX 11 miles away, are all due south.
The Pacific Ocean (12 miles) and Catalina Island can be seen on clear days to the south west. Sunset Strip and the Pacific Design Center can all be spotted with Century City behind them. You can also see the Hollywood sign and the Hollywood & Highland Mall with the white elephants on the roof. The Capital Records building and the Chinese Theatre are just below on Hollywood Boulevard.
