The Angeles National Forest - San Gabriel Mountains National Monument 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.
