Dog Friendly Hermosa Beach


Hermosa Beach Veterans Parkway/Greenbelt

Veterans Parkway/Greenbelt
This is a great walk/hike for you and your dog. Start in Hermosa Beach at Herondo St/Valley Drive and walk north towards Manhattan Beach on this charming wood-chip trail. Referred to locally as the greenbelt, this 3.5 mile trail is dog-friendly but you must have your dog on a leash. The trail intersects with Pier Avenue in Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach Blvd in Manhattan Beach, where you can go off trail and find a variety of dog-friendly restaurants and cafes. If you walk the path all the way north, you will end up in a parking lot right next to the Manhattan Village Mall.
