Closed dusk - dawn.

Recent trail work has been underway to repave sections of trail in the park and to add water fountains. Please respect all signage and closures.

Runner Notes

A wide dirt road that provides a great option for hill sprints or simply a sustained grade of around 8%. The tread is dusty but holds well.

Description

This wide, dirt road bisects Runyon Canyon Park and provides a section of the famous Runyon Canyon loop. Most visitors will start up this road from one of the southern trailheads off Vista St or Fuller Ave. However, this road can also be accessed from the North Entrance off Mulholland Drive, which starts at the top of the hill as opposed to the bottom.

Flora & Fauna

Chaparral ecosystem dominated by shrubs such as sclerophyllous.
