My only complaint is the wilderness is too near the city. The broken bottles and baby diapers litter the ground and visitors cannot use the trash cans. That is why I seek out the back country. The trails are well maintained and the scenery is awesome. Hike the Mount wilson trail or ir you are adventuresome hike the San Gabriel... More

This was a great drive. If you have driven on the 1 this is nothing. This drive was nice and relaxing. We brought our lunch and ate it at a camp site. Weather was great we drove from la Canada to Wrightwood. I will drive this again.

There's no way you can really see all of it at once. First you must consider the season you decide to pay the park a visit and then each time you go it is different. So you gotta program at least 4 visits a year to enjoy each season and at the same time try camping so that you may... More

If you don't mind curvy roads, there is great scenery for a drive. Lots of hiking trails, a ton of bikers, and the views are breathtaking. Depending on the time of year, you can really feel a million miles away from LA's bustle. And it's just a 20 - 30 minute drive from the city. Once you get off the... More

We hiked Switzer in October 2014. It was no water in the falls due to the dry season, but still a beautiful hike. If you go up, the view is breathtaking.

Pretty drive, but turns may make some travelers road sick. Growing back from fires many years ago. Can be a short cut between Pasadena area and Antelope Valley. Save miles but not time.

Just got back from a visit to Angeles National Forest. We hiked the Mount Baden-Powell Trail. Challenging but great hike! You can read about my experience here: http://unapologeticallyyou.blogspot.com/2014/08/california-vacation-adventures-part-i.html Feel free to ask any specific questions about my experience with the park.

Our son was going mountain biking and we decided to come along for birding in Chilao. Beautiful scenery, close to nature but did not care for composting toilets along the way. We did find some uncommon birds like the white headed woodpecker, fox sparrow, white breasted nuthatch and dark eyed juncos. We then proceeded to Newcomb's Ranch for lunch. Wonderful... More

Great trails to hike in the Angeles National Forest. I have done hikes in Altadena, Pasadena, Monrovia, Glendora, Azusa. Beautiful views and scenery. Can't beat it. I was in awe of the beautiful snow capped mountains and solitude.
