The Angeles National Forest covers over 650,000 acres and is located in the San Gabriel Mountains, just north of the metropolitan area of Los Angeles County, California.

The land within the Forest is diverse, both in appearance and terrain. Elevations range from 1,200-10,064 ft. Much of the Forest is covered with dense chaparral which changes to pine and fir-covered slopes as you reach the majestic peaks of the higher elevations.

The ANF contains three designated wilderness areas: Cucamonga Wilderness, San Gabriel Wilderness, and Sheep Mountain Wilderness.
