From the Green Valley Lake side the trail winds along the mountain side, which was recently burned by fire.  There is a lot of new growth in the burn area as the environment begins to heal itself.  The burned area now offers wonderful views of the valley and not only reminds us to be careful with our natural areas, but also provides some insight into the dynamic resilience of nature.

Spring – 2013.  The entire trail was open from the Green Valley Lake side, but closed at the intersection with Rim of the World Drive.

A Forest Service Adventure Passes are required if you plan on stopping along the way. As of September 2016, forest visitors parked in standard amenity recreation fee sites in the four southern California national forests must display a valid recreation pass. This includes sites on the Angeles, Cleveland, Los Padres and San Bernardino National Forests. Such is the once great state of California.
