Discover our local hiking opportunities

Before beginning any hike or mountain outing, please check the weather forecast, trail conditions and area closures with the local U.S. Forest Service office. Check with your doctor to be sure everyone in your party is healthy enough to meet the physical exertion that your hike or outing requires. Carry the Ten Essentials (see "Ten Essentials"), and leave details of your itinerary, party members and estimated time of return with family or friends.

Due to fire and recent storms, some trails in our areas may be closed. Visit us again in the future to read about a new featured hike. In the meantime, plan your hike by first checking trail conditions by contacting the Angeles National Forest to get the most recent information on trail conditions.

Before you leave, please fill out Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Search and Rescue - Hiking Plan sheet and provide to a loved one to hold onto just in case something happens to a member of your hiking/camping expedition.
