Some 41,000 acres at the Big Tujunga Canyon end of the Angeles National Forest reopened this weekend for the first time since the big Station Fire in 2009. Recreation sites available again to the public include Stone Canyon Trail, Trail Canyon Trail, and the Delta Flat recreation areas, the forest announced. A large swath of the forest that was burned in 2009 remains closed to recreation for reforesting or due to hazards. Hopefully the web map at the Angeles National Forest website will be updated soon to reflect the changes.
