Due to a forecast of inclement weather this weekend, Los Angeles County Public Works Department has enacted road closures throughout Angeles National Forest. Please visit the CARE for updated information regarding road closures
The Angeles National Forest offers natural environments, spectacular scenery, developed campgrounds and picnic areas, swimming, fishing, skiing and the solitude of quiet wilderness areas. Trails winding throughout the forest accommodate hikers, equestrians, mountain bikers and off-highway vehicle enthusiasts. Please visit our recreational activities page for more information.
Many of the facilities and services in the Angeles National Forest are free. Some areas and facilities in the Angeles, as well as in the other national forests of Southern California, require the Adventure Pass or other recreation fees to help maintain, manage and improve the amenities that forest visitors enjoy. To learn if fees are required at the area or facility you plan to visit, please contact the Forest Service office nearest your destination.
We’ve been publishing the ANF Volunteer Project Directory on our website for nearly a year now – primarily as a means to tell new or would-be volunteers about current projects, and to encourage them to get involved. We’ve updated the directory each month, to include new projects and opportunities for volunteer service throughout the year.
However, in this end-of-the-year edition, we want to make YOU the STAR of the show! As we bring the year to an end, we would like to shine the Directory spotlight on the many wonderful accomplishments of the individuals and groups who are already serving as volunteers – and to say a great big THANK YOU to the thousands of you who have given of yourselves in service to the Angeles National Forest in the past year.
Fire restrictions on the Angeles National Forest will be downgraded from “Very High” to “High” effective Wednesday (Dec. 14). The change is a result of recent rain and cooler temperatures throughout the southland. “Although we are lowering the Fire Danger level we ask that everyone remain cautious because even with snow visible in the high country, the vegetation in the lower foothills are still susceptible to fire,” said James Hall, acting Fire Chief for the forest.
