Hiking Trails In The Summer For You And Your Mate

  1. Runyon Canyon

2001 N Fuller

Los Angeles, CA 90046

Enjoy one of the most loved hiking trails in Los Angeles for you and your pup off leash. The views on this trail are amazing! You will catch lots of other pups on the trail but make sure you take water for the both of you especially during the summer.

2. Griffith Park

4730 Crystal Springs Drive

Los Angeles, CA 90027

Another popular hiking trail that is dog friendly is at Griffith Park! Here are the best trails that we found:

  • The Hollyridge trail is a total of 5 miles the views of the Hollywood sign

  • The Ferndell trail is off of Los Feliz Blvd and you will find on your way back The Trails Cafe where you can buy food for yourself and treats for your Mate!

  • The Bronson Caves Trail is really fun as it is home to the Batman TV series in the 60s

  • The West Observatory Loop trail is about 2.5 miles and is open all year to go check out those great views!

3. The Wisdom Tree, Cahuenga Peak, and Mount Lee Summit Loop

3535 Wonder View Dr

Los Angeles, CA 90068

This hiking trail is definitely not for beginners! We would recommend that if you do take your Mate with you that it is early in the morning as there are no real shady spots on this hike and it stretched for about 3.7 miles with an incline of 1,300 ft. This hike has amazing views and in a recent fire devastation, the wisdom tree was one of the only trees that survived!

4. Zuma Ridge Trail

Zuma Ridge Motorway & Busch Drive

Malibu, CA 90265

This hike is absolutely beautiful! You will see views of both Zuma Beach and Malibu--- absolutely stunning. This hiking trail does require that your Mate be kept on leash.

5. Fryman Canyon Trail

3453 Fryman Road

Studio City, CA 91604

The Fryman Canyon Trail is a 2.6 mile round hike with a slight incline of 450 feet. While dogs must stay on leash, it is such a fun and stable walk with paved roads nearby a residential area. Definitely one to check out in the summer!


  • Make sure you and your pup are hydrated! Keeping a filled bottle of water in your car is key especially after your hike, just incase you run out during

  • Check the weather! During the summer in LA, the middle of the day is the worst time to get out with your dog as concrete and no shady spots can cause your pup to over heat.
