Los Padres ForestWatch Trails App

By Joanne A Calitri   |   February 14, 2023

Director of Conservation and Research for The Los Padres ForestWatch Bryant Baker has announced their new phone app for the public to find real time information on forest and trail closures and conditions. 

Baker says: “Due to damage caused by severe winter storms earlier this month, many trails and roads have been closed to public access. It’s important to know where the public can and can’t go. We’re excited to release a new interactive tool to explore the status of trails and roads throughout the southern Los Padres National Forest, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, and dozens of local parks and preserves.”

The app details regional trails, access roads, major roads, regional protected areas, ranger districts, designated wilderness, and shows public access status.
