Angeles National Forest
701 North Santa Anita Ave.
Arcadia, CA 91006

(626) 574-1613



The Angeles National Forest offers 557 miles of hiking and equestrian trails which include 73 miles of National Recreation Trails and 176 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). These trails offer ample choices for all, from beginners to experienced outdoor enthusiasts.

All trails, except the PCT and those in Wilderness Areas, are open to mountain bikes. Be careful and alert! Mountain bikes must yield the right-of-way to hikers and horses.

Before beginning any hike!
  • Take into account your time available.
  • Have a good knowledge of the area (maps help!).
  • Check out the weather for the area you will be hiking in and dress appropriately. Take extra clothing and the necessary equipment (don?t forget water). The time of year will help determine your needs for your trip.
  • Consider what the terrain is like where you're going.
  • Check with a local Forest Service office for information concerning trail conditions and fire restrictions.
  • Please leave the Forest clean - dispose of your trash in trash receptacles or bring it back with you.
  • Keep the wildlife "wild". Please never feed the wildlife, and watch and enjoy from a distance!
  • Let family or friends know where you are going and when you expect to return.
Suggested Equipment Checklist:
  • Small shovel or trowel for sanitation.
  • Whistle (3 blasts is a distress signal). Please use the whistle only in an emergency!
  • Flashlight
  • First aid kit
  • Snakebite kit
  • Pocket knife
  • Dark glasses and sunscreen lotion
  • Waterproof matches
These trails are only a few of the many, varied hiking, cycling and equestrian experiences you can enjoy on the Angeles National Forest. Click on the title for more information. Many excellent trail books (such as John W. Robinson's "Trails of the Angeles") are also available and may be purchased at Angeles National Forest Visitor Centers and other Forest outlets (call for a location near you) as well as local bookstores.
