"Nestled in the hills to the west of the Hollywood sign, Runyon Canyon is a see-and-be-seen hiking circuit, heavy on unleashed dogs. On a recent weekday morning, Natalie Portman was easily the most recognizable actor on the mountain." - L.A.

[11/20/18] Runyoners, we hope you have a great Thanksgiving! And after that second helping of pumpkin pie you may want to stop by Runyon Canyon to work off a few calories 😅 FYI, Runyon will be open all weekend. Enjoy!!!
[09/26/18] Runyoners one of our regulars, Robbie Shaffer, came across a rattlesnake on the ridge above the paved road during his afternoon walk. The trail is narrow and can be dangerous for off leash dogs and humans unable to see in the underbrush. Robbie was lucky and saw the snake before getting too close. If you need to walk or run in these areas, please do it early in the morning before rattlers come out to sun themselves. Walk in clearer areas in the afternoon to avoid an expensive trip to the Vet or ER.
For the past decade, Sydney of Runyon has served as the page mascot. Thank you for the memories sweet girl. A great life looping every trail, hitting every beach, licking everyone who touched you! You survived the LA Dogworks fire and later trained on drills with LAFD. But that big C came hard and fast. We love you! RIP... Sydney is survived by three little human brothers, huge family, and countless Runyoners who called her their own. May we all be so lucky. 27 Aug 2018.

[11/14/16] Runyoners: Tonight the Super Moon will rise at 5:25 pm and skies will be clear. This is the closest the full moon has been to Earth in 75 years and your last chance to see this phenomenon. While Runyon may be closed at that time depending on the park rangers, a sure bet to see it is at the Observatory in Griffith Park. Enjoy!
[09/07/16] Runyoners we hope you're enjoying the changes in the park. It appears many of the old Runyon guard are back. We have a member of our community who left her phone on a bench yesterday (Tuesday, September 6). If you found and have it please leave a note here. Thanks. Here's her message: I left my phone on one of the benches on the trail yesterday. It was a Samsung Galaxy S6 with a clear bumper case on it. The phone is password protected and encrypted and I can enter the right password to unlock and prove ownership. Thanks in advance !!
[08/03/16] Runyoners, Runyon Canyon is open! The vegetation has had four months to regenerate which has been sorely needed for a long time. Please try to stay on trails and not walk on it. Thanks!
[04/01/16] Best line yet from Travis Richey, "I heard Runyon Canyon actually closed so they could install an escalator."
[03/31/16] Runyoners, enjoy the last few hours before the park is shut down until July 31. Please watch this page for updates throughout the construction. I'll let you know how the progress is going and if they will finish early (wishful thinking, I know). Also, look at a previous posting below that gives you hiking options while Runyon is closed..
We normally don't post classes on our page but this is important. Gina Gables is conducting Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for people and their dogs and with the hot days of summer coming so will the rattlesnakes in Runyon Canyon. She has classes scheduled throughout April and if you're interested please go to http://www.manpaw.com/rattlesnake-avoidance.html - Just click on the link to find the dates and locations.
manpaw.com In California, our mild climate provides the perfect environment for Rattlesnakes to remain active year-round. Protect your dog with Rattlesnake Avoidance training. Dogs will learn to recognize the sight, smell, and sound of hiding rattlers.
