Help sought with clearing short trail

City parks officials will be clearing a short trail Tuesday in the Verdugo Mountains, and they’re asking for the public to pitch in.

The trail parallels the Las Flores Motorway, a fire access road, and starts at the end of Sunshine Drive.

Volunteers will cut back overgrown vegetation and perform minor repairs to the path, which is about one-third of a mile long.


Parks officials will provide water and snacks, and depending on the amount of volunteers, expect to finish the work in a few hours.

The work starts at 4 p.m. and will run to 8 p.m. Volunteers are encouraged to join in at any time.

They can park vehicles at the end of Sunshine Drive and walk up to join the crew.

To RSVP, call (818) 550-4478.
