The popular Runyon Canyon Trails at Runyon Canyon park are scheduled to be closed from April to July due to a water leak repair.
Located in the Hollywood Hills West area, this 3 mile loop, is the most popular and beloved hike on Instagram.
According to KTLA.com “A 1-mile stretch of a 6-inch pipe that runs through the park will be replaced as part of the project, which aims to reduce pipe breaks and improve water quality for the surrounding community”.
The yoga area at Runyon Canyon will remain open. Get your last Runyon Canyon hikes in before the closure!
