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.
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.
