Dagger Flats Trail Work

Trail work is fun, takes a lot of energy, burns a lot of calories, is great for team building, and teens can get community service hours! This is great for scout badges as well!

Dagger Flats Trail is currently impassible. However, The Community Hiking Club will be refurbishing this trail so we can hike it together with anyone who wants to come on September 6 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act which became law on September 3, 1964. No experience required. Dianne will teach each of you how to properly maintain a trail. We can use up to 10 volunteers for each date. Please don’t sign up if you cannot make it. Even if only ONE person signs up, Dianne will go with you! We will be working in a closed area of the forest, so it is imperative that you be on time to the meeting place. We will be going in behind a locked gate!

Meeting Place: Bear Divide Picnic area. From the I-5 freeway, take the SR-14 freeway North. Exit at Sand Canyon. Turn right. Proceed up the canyon, passing all the houses. After you have passed all the houses, you will see a sign that indicates that you are entering the Angeles National Forest. Continue up up up the hill until you see a wood sign that says Bear Divide Picnic area. Turn right. Park. This is our meeting place. If you start going downhill and the road sign has changed to Little Tujunga Road, you have gone too far.

If you would like to work on the trail during the week, message Dianne and we’ll try to work out some dates together.

Meeting time: 7:30 at Bear Divide Picnic Area. Allow ½ hour to get there from Valencia.

Bring work/garden gloves. Wear long pants and hiking boots. Bring lots of water and a lunch. We'll work about 4-5 hours per day.
