The Forest Service plans to reopen more than 100 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails that have been closed since August 2009's Station Fire. Numerous trails in the Angeles National Forest in the mountains east of the 2 will be reopened by next Monday, May 16, the U.S. Forest Service's Sherry Rollman told Altadena Patch. Areas expected to reopen, according to the Patch article, include:

Upper Arroyo/Gabrielino - open, but only up to Paul Little Picnic Area, or down from Switzer's Canyon to the intersection with Bear Canyon trail.

El Prieto Canyon - open, but only to the intersection with Brown Mountain Road.

Brown Mountain Road - closed

Sunset Ridge Trail - open
The Forest Service expects to release a revised trails map of the area later this week.
