    Turbo and I just love the hike up Runyon Canyon. Off leash for most of the hill, it can get hot for the dogs but you will find water in several locations. On several occasions I have seen the man sets up a checkpoint so make sure you have your dog license I have seen many dog owners receive tickets.

    My Favorite Place in LA! Runyon is my favorite place to exercise my dog... cause I get a work out too! they even have an area that you can let your dog go off-leash, always cool if your pup is trained to stay close. Plus you're always bound to bump into someone you know!

    The most "Los Angeles" hike in Los Angeles...if that makes sense! It is listed as a dog park, but it is more of a dog friendly hike than a dog park. This is a great park where "seenery" is almost as important as the hike! You will find this to be one of the busiest dog friendly hikes in Los Angeles for several reasons, the location is right in the middle of Hollywood, very convenient. You can rock it out in 90 minutes so it is a great a quick workout, basically hiking to the top by Mulholland Drive and then back or vica versa. Because of the popularity the place can be very active to even crowded. Lots of attractive people and almost always a celebrity sighting if you are paying attention. So that can be a plus or a minus depending on your desire for tranquility as there are many other dog friendly hikes with less activity in Los Angeles. Only about 2/3 of the hike is off leash and there are often rangers or animal control officers lurking to catch unlicensed or dogs off leash outside the approved zone so look out. Lastly, parking is a bit of a challenge, so you may have to park down the hill a ways and get a bit of a work out in before your work out! Enjoy!

    Runyon Canyon area - great place to people watch, get exercise and spend time with Fido. Even on overcast afternoons you'll find quite a few people with their canine family members up there. There is the "off leash" portion in addition to the higher elevations where it is preferred that leashes be used. However with that being said . . . not many abide by that ruling.

    There is the less strenuous - paved route and the "let's take the stairs" route, which is sure to give your gluteus maximus a good workout. Parking lends to continually be a challenge, but if you park a little down the hill or on a side street you should find something. Weekends are always packed and weekday mornings are the best time to go if your schedule allows you to.

    There is a little stand that's apparently been there forever that has fruit, water and other incidentals. It's on the Honor system, so if you use it - please have integrity and leave a few bucks. Just the fact that someone set this up and still continues to is awesome!! Enjoy the Journey :)

If you are looking for hiking that is dog friendly in Los Angeles Runyon Canyon is a fantastic Off Leash Dog Park in Los Angeles.
