If you are a city dweller who loves to get out in nature for a walk with your dog, you might be surprised to learn that Los Angeles has one of the most incredible canyon hikes that is easily accessible from the city. Dog walking Arroyo Seco Park in Los Angeles is one of the many ways city dogs and their owners can get a breath a fresh air and leave the city behind.

The Arroyo Seco is a waterway that has carved steep canyons in the earth from Red Box in the San Gabriel mountains all the way through northern Los Angeles until it meets up with the Los Angeles river close to downtown. Dog walkers and hikers can count on the Arroyo Seco watershed to provide everything from urban walks through the city to steep and adventurous canyon hikes that leave the city lights behind. Perfect for any activity level you and your furry best friend need.

Hiking the Arroyo Seco in northeastern Los Angeles is a little trickier than meandering along the river pathways farther north in Pasadena, but if you work hard, you will be rewarded with a fun path that connects several different parks and heritage sights. Perfect for you to get a nice walk and take in the sights and your dog to enjoy different smells. Most of the path on this end of town is a series of concrete walkways and pathways. If you keep following the river you'll end up at the confluence where the Arroyo meets up with the Los Angeles River.

You can also follow the river upstream toward Pasadena where the trails start to shift from the concrete walkways of the city to more natural trails. The grade is fairly flat with only a few hills, so you can get a nice workout without being exhausted by steep terrain.

For an urban river dog-walking adventure, you can start at Arroyo Seco Park in northern L.A. and take the paved walkway south toward the Montecito Park Community Center. From here you can piece together a city walk to the confluence of the Arroyo Seco and the Los Angeles River. This walk can be choppy and takes some planning to connect a route, but it's well worth the time. Another option is to take the walkway along the Arroyo Seco Parkway. This will take you along the Pasadena Freeway of the Los Angeles River and into Elysian Park into Salano Canyon.

There are also numerous trails that can give you the feeling of being in nature on your dog walk. Many of these trails will lead you out of Los Angeles proper and into Pasadena, which makes a fun day trip for you and your pup. You can choose easy, flat paths or venture out into the steep canyons.
