Angeles National Forest is registered as California Historical Landmark #717, for being the first National Forest in the state.
While primarily within Los Angeles County, a small part extends eastward into southwestern San Bernardino County, in the Mount San Antonio (Mount Baldy) area, and a tiny section also extends westward into northeastern Ventura County, in the Lake Piru area.
The San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, established in 2014 and managed by the U.S. Forest Service, is largely within the Angeles National Forest.
The Angeles National Forest manages the habitats, flora and fauna ecosystems, and watersheds. Some of the rivers with watersheds within its boundaries provide valuable non-groundwater recharge water for Southern California. The existing protected and restored native vegetation absorb and slow surface runoff of rainwater to minimize severe floods and landslides in adjacent communities.
The land within the forest is diverse, both in appearance and terrain. Elevations range from 1,200′ to 10,064′. The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the forest.
Wilderness Press makes this map specific to the San Gabriel Mountains, located high above the Los Angeles Basin, overlooking the southland. Numerous day hikes, backpacking trailheads, developed campgrounds, and back roads are displayed. Map includes the Wilderness Areas in this region, surrounding the Angeles Crest Highway 2.
