Celebrate National Trails Day on June 2, 2018 in the Iconic San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. The day will include 3.5 hours of work on the series of trails that start or end at the scenic Vincent Gap. Many National and Scenic Recreation Trails depart from this popular spot, such as the Pacific Crest Trail, the Silver Moccasin Trail, the High Desert Trail, the Vincent Gulch Trail, and the trail to Mount Baden Powell. This event is co-sponsored by the National Forest Foundation, REI and the US Forest Service and other volunteer partners. We will break for lunch and a short celebration of National Trails Day around noon. This activity is open to all volunteers, including sponsored groups. Those who are volunteering for trail work for the first time, please identify yourself to the registrar at the meeting site so we can arrange for a Trail Boss to provide instruction and proper tools. For those volunteers that register, lunch, and snacks will be provided.
