San Gabriel Canyon OHV Area Re-opens

San Gabriel Canyon OHV Area reopened June 4, 2005, after being closed for several months due to storm damage.

Located in the Angeles National Forest, winter storms had washed away all of the rock protecting the river from vehicles illegally entering the river. All designated river crossings were destroyed due to high water, and half of the signs were destroyed.

It took a long time for the high water to subside so that repair work could begin. The Forest Service finished the repair on Sunday, May 29, thanks to the help of volunteer group ACORA (Azusa Canyon Off-Roader Association).

30-50 ACORA volunteers worked every Sunday for 5 weeks to get the job done, contributing approximately 1,000 volunteer hours. ACORA also rented a loader, provided an operator, and purchased approximately 75 carsonite signs.

The OHV area will be open Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Summer hours are 8:00 am to 6:00 pm Price: $8 for primary vehicle (e.g. truck and trailer) and $5 for every secondary vehicle (ATV, dune buggy, etc.)
