Reviews

Thru-Hike The Angeles National Forest

This is a great trail through the heart of Angeles NF. The trail is probably best done as a two-day backpacking trip and offers lots of camping options as well as water. I have a full trail guide on my blog, HikingGuy.com, if you'd like to give it a try.
