Hiking Tips for Runyon Canyon: Top Attractions Travel LA I'm going to share some travel survival tips for hiking in L.A. The thing about hiking Runyon Canyon is not that it's like a really intense hike. If nothing, I rate it about a 4 or 5 out of 10. If the smog is thick, you'll be breathing heavily and you won't want to be out on trails. But today is a medium type of day. It's a great hiking spot. There's a couple of trails. The wraparound is around 3 miles. It's known as an industry park, so you'll hear people talking about Hollywood and auditions and stuff like that. Also there's a lot of people on this trail. But because there's so much people and beacuse this is L.A., an image-conscious type of city, you might want to think about what you wear. 1. Bring water & tons of sunscreen. 2. If you like, you can bring your dog, an extra L.A. accessory you see often on these trails. 3. If you bring your dog, curb it. Pick up after yourself. 4. Don't smoke. It's very dry and there's a lot of brush fires. 5. Bring your cellphone. In the case your agent calls you. Extra: I like to bring sunscreen everywhere I go so I put it in a small container. Bring a travel pouch or jog pouch. Mine lights up.

My first time REALLY hiking to the Hollywood sign.... We really did end up on this trail by accident!! Miss Barbie Woda is my good friend visiting from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I am so glad I got to share this hollywood landmark that means so much to me and every other Californian whose grown up in LA or working in the film industry. LOVE California BABY! I can tell you how to get to the exact trail but I will say if you find a thorny tunnel like trail at the beginning of your hike... well check it out it just might be the same way we found ourselves there.

Griffith Observatory is a facility in Los Angeles, California sitting on the south-facing slope of Mount Hollywood in Los Angeles' Griffith Park. It commands a view of the Los Angeles Basin, including Downtown Los Angeles to the southeast, Hollywood to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the southwest. The observatory is a popular tourist attraction with an extensive array of space and science-related displays. 3,015 acres (12.20 km2) of land surrounding the observatory was donated to the City of Los Angeles by Colonel Griffith J. Griffith on December 16, 1896. In his will Griffith donated funds to build an observatory, exhibit hall, and planetarium on the donated land. Griffith's objective was to make astronomy accessible by the public, as opposed to the prevailing idea that observatories should be located on remote mountaintops and restricted to scientists. Griffith drafted detailed specifications for the observatory. In drafting the plans, he consulted with Walter Adams, the future director of Mount Wilson Observatory, and George Ellery Hale, who founded (with Andrew Carnegie) the first astrophysical telescope in Los Angeles. As a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project, construction began on June 20, 1933, using a design developed by architect John C. Austin based on preliminary sketches by Russell W. Porter. The observatory and accompanying exhibits were opened to the public on May 14, 1935. In its first five days of operation the observatory logged more than 13,000 visitors. Dinsmore Alter was the museum's director during its first years; today, Dr. Ed Krupp is the director of the Observatory.
