Postcards from LA – Hiking Runyon Canyon

by Tony Shea on April 4, 2013


One of my favorite things to do in Los Angels is hike. Within an hour’s drive of downtown, there are dozens of awesome hiking trails from Big Bear to Malibu. There’s also several great hikes right here in town with unbelievable views. Located in the center of the city and overlooking Hollywood, Runyon Canyon has served as a location in a multitude of films and affords a panoramic view east to west from downtown  to the ocean.  It’s like a postcard in every direction, so I figured I would make a few of my own.
