Highway 2 is now open from LaCanada to WW.

Driving to Chantry Flats during race weekend.
Chantry Flats is open to crews. However, parking is very limited! Do not recommend you take a motor home or any large vehicle because of the limited space to drive, park and turn around. There is also "one-way" section near the end of the drive, to accommodate a damaged section of the road that has not been repaired yet.

The USFS has increased its focus on safety.
Volunteers working in the forest are now required to wear long pants and shirts, gloves and work boots (not running/tennis shoes etc). Hard hats if available. These are now USFS requirements, not requests. Please comply.

Angeles Crest 100 mile endurance run

The San Gabriel back country retains much of the natural beauty, if not the primitive wilderness of yesteryear. Thanks largely to the foresight and capable supervision of the U.S. Forest Service and hundreds of volunteers. Picnic areas and campgrounds have been constructed with minimum displacement of the natural setting.

Those desiring to see this primitive wilderness in a single day are invited to participate in the Angeles Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run.
