One of the best ways to experience this unique natural feature is by taking advantage of the Arroyo Seco Park. This recreational area in Northern Los Angeles offers beautiful dirt paths through forested and grassy areas. You can find easy going trails that follow along the river, or challenge yourself and your pup up a hilly hike with views of the city. Your dog and your body will be happily tired after a dog walk in Arroyo Seco Park.
To up your heart rate, you can find several trails that climb up through forests and grassy hillsides that your dog will love running through. These trails pass through and connect several neighborhoods, so the pathways can change between natural and paved along the way. You'll be sure to meet ,any other nature-loving dog walkers as this area is popular, and right down the road you'll find the Hermon dog park for off-leash romping fun.
To really get your heart pumping you can follow one of the city-meets-country trails from Arroyo Seco Park that makes its way through several neighborhoods into Earnest E. Debs Park. After you catch your breath you'll be rewarded with a unique view looking down on the city. You can even make this into a loop hike so you and your pup can get a different view each way.
