What we're about

Meet other local hiking enthusiasts - those who are dedicated to hiking excursions, near and far, with a focus on leaving no trace of litter on our lands!

We hike, snowshoe, camp, backpack, bring in speakers for our nature series, work on wilderness legislation and have stewardship events that keep our city clean and save the condors. We're all about fun, and completely free! All ages and fitness levels are invited to come join us any time.

DAGGER FLAT TRAIL WORK - Volunteer Opportunity

Meet Near Bear Divide

******** THIS IS NOT A HIKE ***********

Join Dianne for some light trail clean up of the DAGGER FLAT TRAIL - No experince required!

THIS IS NOT A HIKE, but you will be among some of the most spectacular scenery near SCV. The trail is still there! Help Dianne bring it back from being a bit overgrown after the last fire.

At this time we are restoring the beginning of the trail, closest to the trail head. We will show you how to make/ maintain a trail. Get that special feeling of accomplishment as you work with other volunteers to complete manageable small outdoor projects (Trimming, trail brushing and stashing trimmings). No heavy lifting etc. at this time. Work for a few hours, we will leave to come back early if it gets too hot.

Bring a mask if you cannot maintain social distancing.
PLEASE only RSVP "Yes" if you can make it. Dianne will bring tools according to the RSVPs.

Google Latitude/Longitude coordinates for the Meeting Spot (at Sand Canyon Road and 3N17) are[masked], [masked].

Directions to Meeting Spot (White Gate for 3N17):
Take the I-5 to the SR-14 North. Exit at Sand Canyon, turn right (South/East). Go all the way past all the houses, Placerita Canyon etc., going straight. Enter the Angeles National Forest and continue up!up!up! Sand Canyon Road until you see a memorial at a bad corner (on the right side). Shortly after this you will see a small brown sign "Santa Clara Divide Road". Park in one of the turnouts to the left, right, or above this sign but not blocking the white gate. Dianne will caravan you to the trail head.

Meeting Time:
We will meet at 7:45AM and leave no later than 8:00AM SHARP. The trail head is 4 miles along Forest Road 3N17.

Boots, plenty of WATER and snacks, a sack lunch. TP (there are no bathrooms), strong garden GLOVES (suede leather type recommended) , sunscreen, sun hat, bandana.

Do Not Bring:
Dogs, as they get bored. Also, it would not be safe to bring young children (due to tools and trail is narrow).
Leave your garden tools at home, as we could damage them or lose them.

Thank you for helping bring back this trail, so we can all enjoy it.

Leader: Dianne
