Runyon Canyon Trail is a 3.5 mile loop trail located near Los Angeles, California that offers scenic views and is rated as moderate. I am not so sure about that. The trail is primarily used for hiking & trail running and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
There is one trail in the park called Suicide hike and it is basically straight up. Well not really, but it seems like it. These are some pics and a video I took yesterday.
During this part of the hike, “Pressure” by Billy Joel was playing on my iPod and boy were my legs feeling the pressure. The views of Los Angeles from Runyon are spectacular.
I stopped to take a picture of Craig and Brandon’s place and it’s funny but as soon as I stopped my iPod began playing “Borrowed Angels” sung by Kristin Chenowith. How very appropriate.
I completed the trail in 1 hour and 18 minutes. Not as good as I did when I was with Craig (our time was 1 hour and 10 minutes), but I am very proud of my achievement.
