Hike Hollywood & Beat Your Jet Lag

We’ll kick off your Hollywood Hills hike tour through Runyon Canyon, one of the most popular hiking trails in LA, delve into a clandestine Buddhist garden, and burn over a thousand calories- all before 9 am!

Runyon Canyon has historically been one of the best places to hike in Los Angeles. Located right in the middle of Hollywood, hikers have enjoyed over 160 acres of Hollywood Hiking trails for the last thirty years. With peaks in the park reaching heights of over 1,320 feet, the park offers gorgeous views of the best neighborhoods in LA. Celebrity sightings in the park are common– so be sure to bring your camera for some of the best pictures to Instagram in Los Angeles. Look down, too– Runyon Canyon is one of the most popular places to hike with dogs in LA!

When we return from your tour, we’ll be just steps away from the best things to do in Hollywood. We’ll make sure to send you off armed with recommendations for a fun-filled day of all the best LA tours and places to sightsee, eat, drink, and be merry in Los Angeles. You’ll work up an appetite from our rigorous, early morning hike tour, so you can grab breakfast at Earth Bar (healthy and delicious) or The Griddle Cafe (not so healthy, but equally delicious.) Take breakfast to go, then stroll the Walk of Fame for some morning Hollywood sightseeing, and if you’re not too tired after your hike, join us on one of our daily hiking and biking tours of LA!
