We just hiked Paradise falls out there last weekend.
Nice little hidden place.

Torrance here. I usually day hike up in the Portuguese Bend area in PV, and just got back from a backpacking trip in SEKI.

Hey, grampa -- looks like we're neighbors. I live in Fullerton, near Gilbert and Rosecrans (a couple of blocks north of Amerige Heights).

In and around Pasadena/Glendale.

In answer to the Q about Angeles Crest: the crest is still accessible; only the lower section of ACH is closed. You drive up Big T, go left on Angeles Forest, turn right on Upper Big T, and then connect to the upper section of ACH. Adds about 30 min. to the drive, but the backcountry is open. Great time to get out in the backcountry -- the road closure has WAY reduced the number of folks in the backcountry. I did two hikes along the PCT last month. Hardly saw anyone.

And of course there's always the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains as well as the mountains in Ventura County.

BUNCHES of hikes out there. So Cal is fabulous place for hikers.

Pasadena. The station fire kind of screwed things up but there are still plenty of backpacking/hiking choices east of the the fire zone.
