NileGuide Expert tip:
Be sure to get a (widely available) National Forest Adventure pass; this allows you to park you car in the park.
- Often described as the "backyard" of Los Angeles, this sprawling national forest is only a short drive away from the city's urban sprawl. With 650,000 acres and mountains up to 10,000 feet high, there is always something new to discover here, whether it be snowboarding down slopes or staring at those stars that are barely visible from the city. The climates and terrains vary greatly, and include dense forests and high deserts. The forest is found in San Gabriel Mountains and can be accessed from Pasadena. Their information office in Arcadia, at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, can provide everything you need to know before you embark into the wilderness. Call the office for information or check their website.
