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.
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.
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.
