It’s difficult to plot a run incorporating some of the area’s famous homes. They’re disbursed, off roads that are difficult for running, or behind gated communities. One good area, though, is above Griffith Park, using North Beechwood Dr. as the anchor. Run on N. Beechwood Dr. from the intersection of Franklin Ave. or Hollywood Blvd./Sunset Dr. just a few blocks south. Off North Beechwood Dr. you’ll see some spectacular homes. You can use that road as an anchor and meander to the other residential streets in the area.NOTE: this is area is really hilly — it is a 500 foot, fairly steep climb up N. Beechwood over 2 miles into Griffith Park.
This run is 2 miles One Way to the end of N. Beechwood Dr. in Griffith Park. You can turn around, add by running onto other roads in the area, or continue another 2.5 miles to the Griffith Park Observatory using Canyon Dr., Mulholland Hwy., & Mt. Hollywood Dr.
