Interesting Facts:

Grassy Hollow is 100 feet from the Pacific Crest Trail, which goes from Mexico to Canada, a distance of 2631 miles.

The area around Grassy Hollow burned in 1997, a total of 18,000 acres, but the immediate area of our tall trees did not.

The Volunteers have recently re-signed the Lightning Ridge Trail, a 3/4 mile self guided nature trail one mile east of Grassy Hollow on Highway 2, as well as the nature trail at Table Mountain Campground, which is 3 miles east of Grassy Hollow – the entrance is off the parking lot at Ski Sunrise. Brochures located at the trail head will guide you through these trails while teaching about the forest.

Permits Required:

Note that the U.S Forest Service requires a National Forest Adventure Pass or a Golden Passport be displayed on vehicles parked for recreational purposes in most areas of the Angeles National Forest. You DO NOT need a pass to visit the Visitor Center but DO if you plan to picnic or hike, etc.

You may secure a National Forest Adventure Pass at Grassy Hollow Visitor Center or from another Forest Service location.
