BringFido Traveler Rating

Hidden Valley Nature Center and Wildlife Preserve has received a rating of 4.0 out of 5 bones by 3 dog owners on BringFido.

  • More than one year ago.
    Closes too early

    A great place to hike with your dog. The problem is that the park closes at 4:30, forcing you to hike during the heat of day.

    $5 Cash Parking Fee

    Be sure to bring $5 in cash- it's quite a way to the nearest ATM. Decent little park, rolling hills and some wooded river bottoms- the canyon trails around Azusa and Pasadena are much prettier and don't charge for parking.

    great place for a long walk

    This is an oasis in the middle of town. Great fun for the dogs!
