    I went on a great hike in Angeles National Forest the first week I moved here. The Switzer Falls trail is a winding path that criss-crosses over streams, through the forest, along the side of a cliff (scary part!) and finally makes its way down to a beautiful waterfall that you can jump into. It's amazing to think that this is available just a quick drive from busy Los Angeles, but in truth there is a lot of hiking in the area - and Angeles National Forest has some of the best trails. There's also a great bike path up in the mountains here - closer to Arcadia - that is relatively flat and family-friendly.

    What can you say about a National Forest? Angeles National Forest is one of the most beautiful. Haven't been there in almost 30 years but how could it not still be beautiful?
