Back to Runyon Canyon in Hollywood
Hollywood History on a Private Hiking Tour
After months of being closed down for water line repairs (city infrastructure improvements must go on) we are so very excited that Runyon Canyon Park is once again open for hiking. We truly love this park for a number of reasons. Our very active Los Angeles private tour guests can enjoy a very enjoyable hike right in the middle of Hollywood. With an option for a somewhat strenuous climb/descent on some steep sandy slopes or a mild walk up a paved access road from just above Hollywood Boulevard to Mulholland on the crest of the Hollywood Hills we can point out some interesting historical facts and locations in the park. We can also enjoy some extraordinary views of Hollywood and Los Angeles at any number of scenic points along the way. The hike only requires a limited amount of time so we can still drive east and hike right up to the Hollywood Sign (two excellent hikes in one tour…who does that?) or we can continue sightseeing in and around the Hollywood Hills to see celebrity homes and famous Hollywood locations. The very hot summer weather recently yielded to some cooler, slightly overcast days which only made the hiking even better. Our guests enjoy the exercise as well as the opportunity to see the Hollywood “regulars” who get their steps in each day on the park’s trails. We might pass a yoga class, tai chi or qi gong sessions anywhere in the park where there is sufficient flat space. Finally, our guests can learn about our chaparral landscape and get a really good sense of the ecology of Los Angeles. Enjoy a different kind of sightseeing adventure in Hollywood and come hiking with us.
