Adventure Hikes

Best dog hiking field trips in Los Angeles

Level II
Basic obedience and on-leash walking skills required
All breeds

Boredom is the leading cause of behavioral issues.  Dog hiking offers small group socialization, exercise, and excitement plus much needed time in nature.

Our group hikes are 90 minutes long and distance depends the pace and fitness level of the pack. Dogs are on or off leash depending on ability and trail guidelines.


Most Frequented Trails

Trails are chosen based on availability, weather, and proximity to pick-ups. Our preferred trail is Kenter Canyon because it has wide trail lanes and allows for off leash play 2 miles from the trailhead.

  • Kenter Canyon
  • Upper & Lower Ridgeback
  • Sullivan Canyon
  • Griffith Park
  • Kenneth Hahn


Timing of Pick ups

Dogs are picked up between 7:15am and 9am. The time of pick up largely depends on your proximity to the trail and the other pick up locations for that day. Our goal is to get to the trail no later than 9:15am in order to beat the heat.

Dogs benefit significantly from having a mix of enrichment and training classes in addition to their normal play schedule. With a holistic care approach, your dog will become more well-rounded, confident, and a better companion to you.


Adventure Hikes offer small group socialization and moderate to high intensity exercise. In addition to a ‘paw’some physical workout, dogs benefit from spending time in nature which is proven to reduce stress and anxiety.

  • We only use positive reinforcement training techniques.
  • We track our vans and driver safety with Samsara.
  • Our Excursion Leaders are experienced, trained employees.
  • Training Partners are certified, experienced dog trainers who are experts in the classes that they lead.
  • For outdoor classes, like Adventure Hikes, we keep a low employee ratio of one leader to every 7 dogs.
  • You get to have in on the fun, too! After every class, you will get a Snapshot of your dog including photos, videos, and notes.
