Hundreds of hikers at Runyon Canyon took advantage of the nice holiday weather to enjoy the popular spot on the last weekend it will be open until mid-summer.

A one-mile section of water pipe at the canyon’s park is being replaced after Department of Water and Power officials identified 30 spots along the 6- inch pipe that are prone to leaks.

The park and the hiking trails, with their sweeping views of the city and the nearby Hollywood sign, will be closed until July. A yoga field at the park will remain open.

City officials previously released a list of nearby facilities with similar hiking trails and recreational opportunities. They include:

–Franklin Canyon Park, 2600 Franklin Canyon Drive in Beverly Hills;

–Fryman Canyon Park, 8401 Mulholland Drive in Studio City;

–Hollywood Reservoir, 6399 Weidlake Drive in Hollywood;

–Wilacre Park, 12601 Mulholland Drive in Studio City.
