Bear Canyon Trail Maintenance
Meeting location: Angeles Crest Highway, 1 block north of 210 Freeway. If you miss us, drive 10 miles up ACH and turn right for the spur road down to Switzer Picnic Area.
Our plan is to do a through hike starting from Eaton Saddle and ending at Switzer Day Use Area. We will scout the trail, clear any newly fallen trees and make the trail passable as much as possible. We will asses the trail condition and set priorities for the remaining trips this season. Hike will be 8.5 miles with 600′ gain on return. There will be many stream crossings and water levels are high, so you may wish to bring hiking poles.
Trail work will consists of brushing, light tread work and log removal. Primary emphasis is on making the trail more visible and removing hazards. We try to accommodate each persons needs regarding tasks and hope that you have a productive and enjoyable experience. We will provide tools but you can bring your own if you prefer.
Hat, gloves, long pants & long-sleeved shirt, good boots and safety glasses are recommended (hard hat will be provided.) Sandals & Sneakers are not allowed. Please be sure to bring of water and your lunch. We will bring extra hard hats, gloves and safety glasses but you are welcomed to bring your own (sunglasses are OK).
We hope to be back to Switzer by 4:30 pm.
