    Highlights of Runyon Canyon Park 

    Runyon Canyon Park has 4 different trails: a .85-mile loop, a 1.9-mile loop, a 2.65-mile loop, and a 3.3-mile loop. The longest trail is a combination of 2, but each has a trail map so that you can best determine the level of potential difficulty and elevation changes.

    Some trails have very wooded areas, while the vegetation is sparse and more desert-like in other parts. This means that the views are beautifully diverse and add to the appeal of hiking at Runyon Canyon Park, but also that some parts are more shaded than others.
