Great hike to do with your dog. Very mild, but you have the opportunity to make the trail harder by taking the inclines. Bring lots of water, there's not many shaded areas!

Great views of the Santa Monica mountains and the ocean. Not too busy or strenuous but a nice workout. Highly recommended!

Did this plus Sullivan Canyon. Ends up being over 10 Miles. Sullivan gets steep and challenging. Lots of mountain bikers. Views at top are nice and refreshing.

I like this trail - never ending flat road - a must - for a dog day walk - we went with my GSD last month and it seemed that the road never ends.. we never made it to the end - lol) we are going to catch up in a cooler day - because it can be too hot - for a furry friend during sunny summer day .... not too crowded - just a few bicycle riders and a few dog people along the way ..

Steady incline and mostly dirt trail road up to the Nike missile site which is pretty cool with nice views and restrooms/water. Not much shade other than at the top. Great for trail running and there are several alternate routes if you want some variety. They were gearing up to shoot a movie too.

This is a great trail to let your dogs off leash! My pup loved the 7.7 mile hike. Elevation gain is very gradual. There is no cover. We were blessed by cloud cover on our way in, and the sun came back out on the way back. Beautiful views. Cool Nike missile site at the top. Restrooms and drinking fountains also at the top. Nothing else on the trail unless you want to duck behind a tree, so plan accordingly.

I went on a Sunday and mets lots of other friendly hikers, dogs, and mountain bikers.

Definitely worth the drive to the Westside for a non-Runyon off leash option.

In and out trail to Nike Missile Site. Either fire road or small trail within the brush can be taken to mix up difficulty.

Good for trail running. Wide trail, good ascents and descents, amazing views, not too crowded, and a bathroom and water stop along the trail. Started from the trail head on Westridge Rd to the Fire Station 109 on Mulholland - 11.8 mile RT.

Really loved the view and steady incline. Lots of pups on the trail with friendly owners.

This is great and really one of my favorites but this should really be called Westridge Fire Trail. Mandeville has an amazing loop if you take it to the end.

Not overly crowded, good for dogs, easy parking. Good walk for length and a consistent incline that doesn't leave you gasping.

This is ranked as moderate but its definitely an easier trail. The foot traffic and dog activity wasnt too congested which was great! A lot of mountain bikers going up and down so if your dog (or you!) are skittish, might not be the best trail!

Love this trail! Good for easy (fire road) or harder (ridges) hiking. Fun to get to the water tower. Love having dogs off leash.

Love that my dog can be off leash. Lots of space for bikers to pass by. Super dusty and no shade. Can get hot early. Best to walk early morning.

Great hike! This can be casual or more intense as there is an additional trail to the right of the fire access road. Fantastic for trail running. It gets hot in the sun so bring plenty of water and try to start before 8am. There is plenty of street parking available.
