Best Hikes with Dogs: Southern California

14.95

Allen Riedel and his canine trail companions, Chewbacca and Socrates, have hiked thousands of miles together in southern California to select the best dog-friendly, dog-fun, and dog-safe hikes in the region.

  • More than 60 dog-suitable trails, accessible from metro areas including Los Angeles, Palm Springs, San Diego, and Santa Barbara
  • Most trails are lightly traveled; off-leash permitted on nearly half
  • What to pack for your pooch on the trail

More than two-thirds of the hikes are on lesser-known trails where travel is light and where you're unlikely to meet horses, bicycles, or motorized vehicles. On nearly half of the trails, off-leash hiking is permitted. The hikes avoid steep, rocky terrain and many offer lakes or streams as a reward. Paw comfort rating (whether you'll be walking on sand, dirt, or pavement) is clearly noted in the information block at the beginning of each hike description; potential dog hazards such as ticks or poison oak are described in the text.

A Trail Finder chart in the front of the book indicates trail length, which hikes include water, swimming, or shade, which are "good for senior dogs" or "best for fit dogs".
