If sipping martinis and strolling through the Getty's newly improved Central Garden is too stuffy for an outdoor retreat, the Angeles National Forest is announcing a reopening for Memorial Day weekend too. About 41,000 acres will be open for hiking, picnicking and camping.

Recreation areas that will be available again to the public include the Stone Canyon Trail, Trail Canyon Trail and the Delta Flat. They were closed due to the Station Fire, the largest of the 2009 wildfires, that burned more than 160,000 acres.
