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.
Depending on group size and interest, we may go in/out from Switzer (7 miles rt, 600’ gain each way) to the camp or do the entire trail with a car shuttle (8 miles, 600’ gain return on return). This is our last scheduled trip of the season before our summer break. Our main priority is to fix safety hazards, clear fallen trees, trim brush and fix tread issues. This has been a difficult season but the trail is looking much better now.
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 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.
