I know so many people who love this hiking trail, and while I admit that it's conveniently located and a good "challenging-but-short" hike to fit into your day, the limited parking and smell of dog pee near the entrance to the trail is a big turn-off.
Great now it's open again. Very LA thing to do is go to run/walk Runyon canyon and then go to breakfast ( the best part). Can get hot in summer!
Whenever I have friends or family coming to visit me in the city, I like to take them to Runyon Canyon Park. Not only we can get a great view of the city from here, but also we can have a decent workout. It is also a great date spot! However, it is not an ideal place for doing meditation.
I am kind of a crazy dog person in that I am crazy about dogs, my dog specifically, not crazy in general. I tell him how handsome he is about thirty two times a day and buy him giant cow bones from the italian market and tell him &quot;Go, claim your ancestry. Gnaw and get that marrow in you so that you may not take notice that you are but a resplendent shadow of your former wolfish splendor.&quot; (He = siberian husky).

Runyon canyon is a great workout if you keep a good hiking pace or run it, lots of steep hills. It has beautiful views of the city, but its' not one of the prettiest trails in LA. This is a nice one to go to if you just want to go get a good workout in. It is the most crowded hiking trail I've ever been on, mostly young hollywood types. If you're looking for something very calm and serene definitely pick another park.

I live down the street from Runyon, and run it often (which is damn hard). It's a great work out and has an AMAZING view, and for me is walking distance, so quite convenient.
With that said though, aside from the amazing view at the top, it's not as beautiful as many other trails, and it is hot, dusty and crowded with lots of L.A. too-cool-for-school types hiking in their bikini's as to not get the wrong tan I suppose.
So though a CONVENIENT trail for many, and though certainly a POPULAR trail, it should NOT be listed as the number one trail on this list as there are so many prettier hiking trails, with less people, that are lesser known that people should check out.
There are very few places I will insist you visit no matter what the weather - and this is probably my top choice.
Great for a rainy day (or the weeks following a sunburn) the Annenberg Space for Photography is a "something to do" that you will go to again and again.
Even the most impatient, "I don't like museum" folk (kids, boyfriends, etc) will love this place - and with the new exhibit Beauty CULTure opening this weekend (May 21st) there is something new and absolutely captivating for everyone!

Runyon is a great workout if you really push yourself. The views are wonderful, especially at dusk. I go several times a week and love it.
There are a couple of downsides: the smell of dog crap, as others have pointed out, is strong especially at the park entrance. Also, several times I've encountered Pit Bulls and other vicious breeds running off-leash, which is against the law, although there's never anyone around to enforce it. I've heard of Pits attacking other dogs, but I have not witnessed this myself.
Another downside is the tremendous toll the Southern California drought has taken on the park. The trees and brush are basically dead.
Still, it's a great workout which is much more fun than the gym.
