    This is the best trail for people-watching (and the occasional celeb sighting) as well as getting your heart rate up with steep climbs.

    Runyon has become such a circus over the last few years you really should avoid going to late in the day on a weekend afternoon because there are too many people.

    The city recently banned virtually ALL street parking near the Mulholland entrance. Get here early...

    Parking can be a pain but it's definitely worth it for that amazing view. Plus the hike itself is the perfect amount of hard.

    If you want a little more nature, stick to the valley floor. There is a little path that winds around there and is worth exploring.

    a great hiking fitness move- making to the top you'll get a rewarding sense of accomplishment, an awesome workout and if you like dogs, a "dog show" as pet owners bring their 4-legged pals along
