ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST : Mountain Trails, Roads Closed by Fires Listed
More than 36 miles of recreational trails and about 27 miles of dirt roads were damaged by the October fires in the San Gabriel Mountains above Pasadena and Altadena and are closed to the public.
Even though some trails may seem passable, U.S. Forest Service officials say that hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians who traverse these trails are putting themselves at risk because of possible landslides.
Damaged areas include the Idlehour Trail, Idlehour Campground, Castle Canyon Trail, Sam Merrill Trail, Echo Mountain Trail, Sunset Trail, Winter Creek Trail, Ken Burton Trail, Altadena Crest Trail, Chaney Sunset Ridge Trail and the Mt. Wilson Toll Road.
They probably will not be reopened until spring, officials said.
