L.A. County Hiking Trails Reopen Saturday with Restrictions
Hiking trails throughout Los Angeles County are set to reopen on Saturday, May 9. With the reopening comes a number of restrictions put in place to ensure everyone using the trail system remains as safe and healthy as possible.
Those enjoying the trails will need to observe at least six feet of physical distancing and wear a mask or face covering in all parking lots, trail heads, staging areas and crowded areas where it is not possible to maintain six feet of physical distancing. Masks or face coverings are only required on the trails if users cannot keep six feet of distancing between one another.
The Parks and Recreation Department is expecting the county’s most popular trails to be extremely busy this weekend and ask everyone to download the Trails LA County App or visit trails.lacounty.gov to find alternate trails to try in the area as well as view maps and see your current location on a trail.
