“beautifully lush & diverse forest”

The Angeles National Forest (ANF) of the U.S. Forest Service is located in the San Gabriel Mountains of Los Angeles County, southern California, United States. It was established on July 1, 1908, incorporating the first San Bernardino National Forest and parts of the former Santa Barbara and San Gabriel National Forests. It covers 655,387 acres (1,024.0 sq mi; 2,652.3 km2) and is located just north of the densely inhabited metropolitan area of Los Angeles. A small part extends eastward into southwestern San Bernardino County, in the Mount San Antonio " Mount Baldy" area. A tiny section also extends westward into northeastern Ventura County, in the Lake Piru area. Forest headquarters are in Arcadia, California. The Angeles National Forest manages the habitats, flora and fauna ecosystems and watersheds. Some of the rivers with watersheds within its boundaries provide valuable non-groundwater recharge water for Southern California. The existing protected and restored native vegetation absorb and slow surface runoff of rainwater to minimize severe floods and landslides in adjacent communities. The land within the Forest is diverse, both in appearance and terrain. Elevations range from 1,200 to 10,064 ft(365 to 3,067 m). The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the forest.

Even though it was a bright sunny day when we decided to hike at the Angeles National Forest, we were full prepared with appropriate clothing, water and food supplies so we loved it!

There are such magnificent views and paths to explore while walking at the existing trails.

The place can get really overcrowded as no one can resist this beauty.

So, nature lovers, pack your lunch, fill your bottles with water and begin this journey of excitement!
