Recreation

The Angeles National Forest is an urban National Forest in the center of an ever changing population and provides a wide range of recreation opportunities to visitors from around the world. These important recreation areas provide a place for surrounding communities to experience solitude, quiet, and enjoy unique recreation opportunities.

ON SHOOTING: TARGET SHOOTING IS NOT ALLOWED ANYWHERE IN ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST EXCEPT IN DESIGNATED RANGES.

The policy on pet dogs in all areas of the forest is as follows: Always keep your dog leashed, except when inside a vehicle, tent, dog crate, or portable kennel. Do not allow your dog to wander freely, pursuant to Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 36, Chapter II, Sec. 261.8 (d).

While on a trail or in and around campgrounds and picnic areas, dogs must be kept on a leash (unless caged or crated) no longer than six feet, pursuant to CFR, Title 36, Chapter II, Sec. 261.16 (j).

In addition, your dog must wear a collar with current tags at all times, as state and county laws apply on National Forest System lands.
