Westridge Canyonback Hike in Santa Monica!

Good Afternoon Beautiful People!

This morning I had the pleasure of doing a wonderful hike with some great friends and a cute dog named "Chloe".  The Westridge Canyonback Wilderness Park is nestled in Santa Monica west of the 405 off Skirball.  To get to the trail head you continue down Mullholland Drive and you reach a dirt road/parking lot.  You will see a gated dirt road and thats the start!

This hike is great for dog lovers because its dog-friendly and the park allows "off-leash" walking.  Santa Monica locals were very cheery this morning and everyone had a smile on their face.  You'll see families, elderly, some Bruins track & cross country athletes, and maybe even spot a celeb or two. We saw Janice Dickinson with her twinsie bulldogs!  The hike is about an hour round trip, pretty easy with some moderate hills, and has beautiful views of Los Angeles and the Pacific ocean.  It was a little cloudy today, but on a clear day the views are even better!

Great way to start my Sunday! It was a refreshing hike and I can't wait to go for a run on the trail next time!

Over and out.
