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 (donít 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
