Running Springs is a lovely area that’s right in the middle of the San Bernardino National Forest. Featuring breathtaking views all around and gorgeous scenery, this is the place to be for walks unlike anywhere else. The nearest animal hospital, Rim Forest Animal Hospital, is located in the nearby city of Twin Peaks a short fifteen minutes away.
Right off Keller Peak Road is the Exploration Trail, a nearly nine mile hiking trail that’s friendly to all dogs on a leash no longer than six feet. The hike is moderate and offers some impressive views, as well as a lake. The bugs can get intense, especially in the warmer months, so definitely bring some bug spray. If you plan to hike the entire way, bring some snacks and water enough for both you and your pup.
Branching off Fredalba Road is Fredalba Trail, a lovely scenic route that sports mountains of wildflowers during the warmer months and views unlike any other. Leashed pups are welcome, making this an ideal route to add to your daily routine. There is only one trailhead, so you will have to hike back to the entrance to get off the trail. You and your pup will certainly enjoy all there is to see in Running Springs!
