Los Angeles Hikes

Runyon Canyon Reopened, Park Improvements

Today, August 2nd, Los Angeles’ most popular trail reopened after a four month closure to fix a 100-year-old water pipe. Along the way the city has also made some improvements to the park, mainly water and road repairs. According to @abc7, the construction team came under budget by 1 million dollars and were ahead of schedule in reopening the park.

Here is a list of changes to the park that we noticed:

  • Completely repaved Runyon Cyn Rd
  • Newly added dog and human water faucets
  • Graffiti along the old pool wall has been repainted over

Completely repaved road to hike on. In case of emergencies this is a good way for the ranger or emergency service to get up the mountain if there is an injury.
