Parks & nature in Hollywood, Los Angeles

Park
“Just two blocks from Hollywood Boulevard, Runyon Canyon Park is an often overlooked urban park that offers some great views. Atop the canyon, you can glimpse views of the San Fernando Valley and the Pacific Ocean, as well as the Hollywood Sign and Giffith Observatory. The park also boasts several hiking trails and is a popular spot for celebrities to exercise. Travelers say that the canyon is reminiscent of Old Hollywood with several old mansions and estates scattered throughout the park – keep your eyes peeled as you follow the trail. ”

“Pro-tip: For one of the best sunsets in Hollywood, this is your spot. Take a tour of famous Hollyhock House - open certain days of the week - the original house on this property built by Frank Lloyd Wright for heiress Alice Barnsdall and her young daughter), or just bring a picnic and a cold one to catch the sunset on the grassy hill overlooking the city. For breezy, casual afternoon, this spot is perfect for everyone. All are welcome, always free.”

“Most people come to LA and experience the city from their rental car which makes me sad, the LA I know and love cannot be accessed from a car. Bikes & Hikes offers a tour called "LA in a Day," the tour spans 32 miles in 6 hours and covers nearly all of the Westside. ”

“In Griffith Park, the Fern Dell nature trail is scenic & easy. Connect to the Oberservatory trail for a more moderate/difficult hike. Enjoy a spectacular views of the Griffith Observatory and great people watching the entire way up.”
