This place is beautiful and a prime example of nature. Right in our backyards basically. If you live on the north side of LA then it only takes about 20 minutes to get here.

The husband and I rode our motorcycles up through Angeles National Forest on Hwy 2 to the Wrightwood for lunch. It is beautiful. We wondered if the mountains had trees and it sure does. We weren't speeding as I'm a wimp when it comes to...More
I love visiting this forest, and do so every time I visit Los Angeles. However, it is never what I want it to be. The views are scenic, stunning and breath-taking. However, so is the ride. There appears to be no rules and no law...More
So you come to LA and expect dry semi-desert type environments. Sure there are mountains, but they are dry and parched, right? Well not here! Take the drive to Mt. Wilson Observatory and be amazed at the green landscape. If you pay the park entrance...More
Great drive on the Angeles Forest Highway from the Antelope Valley over into the LA foothill and basin. Not your typical “forest,” as there are few trees, it is nonetheless scenic and beautiful in its own way.

I would not try to hike anywhere in the Angeles National Forest without a buddy. There are parking places near most trail heads. You need a National Forest Pass to park anywhere in the national forest and they can give you advice about trails. However, it is not safe to go alone. Too many people have gotten lost, run out of water, etc. Find a friend. I don't know of any organized group tours, but you might go to a forest ranger station and ask someone you meet if they plan to hike.
