Since Sherman Oaks is located in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, the neighborhood is quite hilly. The southern part of the neighborhood is close to the mountain range, so it has considerably more hills and steeper inclines which can be challenging for those who are beginners or have issues with mobility. Additionally, because of this neighborhood's location, there seems to be a good mix of natural and artificial terrain. The northern part of the neighborhood is more artificial, while the southern part of Sherman Oaks has more greenways and natural terrain. You'll have options depending on which type of environment you prefer. 

The boundaries of Sherman Oaks are not linear, but it is bordered by the following other neighborhoods: Van Nuys and Valley Glen to the north, Studio City and Valley Village to the east, Beverly Glen and Bel Air to the south, and Encino to the west.

Sherman Oaks has plenty of greenways if you and your pup are looking for a little retreat from the more urban LA environment. The larger greenways include Van Nuys/Sherman Oaks Recreation Center and its respective greenway, Deervale-Stone Canyon Park, Fossil Ridge Park, Coldwater Canyon Open Space, Dixie Canyon Park, Longridge Park, and Mrca Open Space. Some of these greenways are actually home to some residential buildings while others, like Fossil Ridge Park and Dixie Canyon Park, have hiking trails. These hiking trails are dog-friendly, but your pup will need to be leashed at all times to avoid any run-ins with other pedestrians, joggers, or bikers. 

Besides the greenways in Sherman Oaks, there are also plenty of greenways just outside of the neighborhood's boundaries. Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve is the largest nearby greenway and it is home to a lake and plenty of walking trails for you to utilize with your pup at your side.
