Do It. Hike Runyon.

This spot is really a perfect hiking area for those who aren't exactly seasoned hikers. Right now is the perfect time of year to go for a hike through runyon. It's cool, but sunny and this place is super dog friendly; one of the few places you can let your dog off the leash.

Runyon gets a lot of flack from the hardcore hiking crowd because it's kind of posh. It's right off Laurel Canyon Drive, and is a regular spot for celebrity sightings. ... and it's surrounded by gigantic homes.

But the view of LA from these trails is beyond comparison, and it's light enough to do very casually on a Sunday afternoon since it's only three miles. But the eucalyptus, small brooks, and the rope swings (when they're up) make for an excellent hike.

Get there before 10:30 a.m. though, otherwise it fills up pretty fast.
