Overview

A brief introduction to Angeles National Forest

The Angeles National Forest was established by Executive Order in December 1892. It covers about 700,000 acres and is the backyard playground to the huge metropolitan area of Los Angeles. The Angeles manages the watersheds within its boundaries to provide valuable water to southern California and to protect surrounding communities from catastrophic floods.

The land within the Forest is as diverse in appearance and terrain as it is in the opportunities it provides for enjoyment. Elevations range from 1,200 to 10,064 feet. 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 Angeles National Forest offers natural environments, spectacular scenery, developed campgrounds and picnic areas, swimming, fishing, skiing and the solitude of quiet wilderness areas. Trails winding throughout the forest accommodate hikers, equestrians, mountain bikers, and off-highway vehicle enthusiasts.

Kinneloa Mesa is an Unincorporated community located in Los Angeles County, California, with a population of approximately 1,000. Unlike Altadena, a larger unincorporated area nearby, Kinneloa Mesa is not an official census-designated place. "Kinneloa Mesa" is in the Los Angeles County list of unincorporated areas and streetmaps including those of the Los Angeles County Assessor's office clearly recognize Kinneloa Mesa Road and Kinneloa Canyon Road as two principal roads through the area.
Kinneloa Mesa adjoins Pasadena, and is close to Altadena (across the Eaton Canyon wash) and Sierra Madre (across an intervening fingertip section of Pasadena).
