The trails in the Angeles National Forest are maintained
and cared for by volunteers who put in over 100 hours a
year of their time to keep our 500 miles of winding trails
in the Angeles National Forest in good hiking condition! This
year, Beyond Basecamp continues in its 5th year of
adopting three back-country campgrounds in the Angeles
NF. People are continually expressing their appreciation
for the maintained trails and campgrounds, but quite often
people say "I'd really love to help, but I can't find the
time or the money." Well, we've got your answer.....
