New Los Padres Forest Trail App

from Los Padres ForestWatch
The Los Padres National Forest and surrounding region is home to hundreds of incredible trails normally open to hiking, biking, horseback riding, or other activities. However, due to damage caused by severe winter storms earlier this month, many trails and roads have been closed to public access. We hope that the Forest Service reopens certain trails, or trail segments, as soon as they are inspected and cleared for safe access. As this process unfolds, it’s important that you know where you can and can’t go.
That’s why we’re excited to release a new interactive tool to explore the status of trails and roads throughout the southern Los Padres National Forest, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, and dozens of local parks and preserves.
Check out the app before heading out on an adventure. Perhaps it will lead you to new trails as your normal stomping grounds recover. Just be sure to give trails a chance to dry out after significant rainfall before you recreate responsibly.
