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.
The Angeles National Forest and San Gabriel Mountains National Monument are accepting applications until April 30 for a new Artist-in-Residence Program to produce artistic renderings of local scenic areas. The residency program is open to artists of any medium – painters, writers, poets, musicians, photographers, weavers, sculptors, performers, etc. The program will also select two Teachers-in-Residence this season. Those selected for residencies will have the opportunity to stay at a cabin in the forest for one to two weeks this summer or fall.
