Its great to get to work one of my favorite trails in the Angeles Forest. In 2009 the Station fire burned most of this area and the trails have been closed since.

In 2011 Bellfree was contracted by the Forest Service to do a trail assessment of these two trails totaling 14 miles. Due to the lack of funding at that time the repairs were not contracted out by the Forest Service. We have now been contracted by the Los Angeles Conservation Corps (LACC) and CORBA to do some of the repairs. A Crew from the LACC has been working with us for the past week and will continue to do so for a couple more weeks

CORBA, the Sierra Club volunteers and the LACC have been working on these trails over the last couple of years and have completed a lot of hard work. There is still plenty to do before the trails can be opened once again to the public.

We worked with a volunteer crew from the Sierra Club on 2/8. On 2/16/14 a CORBA volunteer crew will be working on the Strawberry Peak Trail from Redbox.

The project starts with repairing this slide on the Strawberry Saddle Trail. This slide was a problem long before the Station Fire.
