Description

This trail makes up one of the three options for running in Runyon Canyon Park. Between this trail and the other unpaved, West Trail (Spine Trail), this provides an easier and shorter route up to some spectacular views of the city and L.A. Basin. Connect with the Runyon Canyon Rd for a loop run or head out on the Runyon Canyon featured run.

Flora & Fauna

Chaparral ecosystem dominated by shrubs such as sclerophyllous.
