Once I made it to Los Angeles, I spent an afternoon hiking around Runyon Canyon. The park features views of Hollywood and Downtown LA, a lot fake boobs (sorry, no photos), and small dogs wearing tutus (you’re welcome, no photos). Oh, Hollywood…
There are three main trails in Runyon: an easy (Runyon Canyon Road), medium (Star Trail), and difficult (Hero Trail). I took the Star Trail, which features some steps and steeper slopes between Inspiration Point and Cloud’s Rest. It was a fairly good workout.
