Lowelifes needs your help in reporting trail conditions in the Angeles National Forest. Information on downed trees, erosion, brush encroaching on the trail, safety issues and other maintenance concerns submitted will help us prioritize upcoming work.
Trail Conditions Survey in the Angeles National Forest
Our Trail Assessment tool is available for free on the Apple and Google Play app stores. The app works both in and out of cell service, which is key as most of the Angeles National Forest does not have cell coverage.
Get The App
