At last! The most see-and-be-scene hiking trail in Los Angeles — a statement that says a lot — is once again open for business (as in hiking meetings with agents and managers).
Runyon Canyon Park opened this week after being closed for four months — yes, the span of the entire summer so far, dating back into spring. It was a bit of a first-world crisis among certain sets.
The closure took effect so that crews could work to replace a water main that was aging and threatening to wreak havoc if not addressed. It snaked a mile through the canyon, so the closure couldn’t be avoided.
Well, maybe so, but it also caused a brief separation between fitness types prone to hiking in full makeup and hair — and definitely no shirt — and their favorite trail in Hollywood.
Well, the nightmare is over and folks thronged back into the gates this week to climb the steep loop marked by an intense set of stairs, and epic views that can span on a clear day from the Pacific Ocean to downtown and beyond.
The world still has 99 problems, but a dog-friendly trail full of impeccably athleisure-clad beautiful people is no longer one of them.
