The Puente Hills Habitat Preservation Authority opens some trails on Saturday, May 9th. Read the description from the post below about which Preserve trails/parking lots are accessible. Please also remain safe through physical distancing, face masks are required, and no groups. From the Puente Hills Habitat Preservation Authority:

The Habitat Authority will be re-opening some trails on Saturday, May 9, 2020.

Hellman –Stays closed. Los Angeles City set the precedent with keeping their busy Runyon Canyon closed, and Runyon Canyon’s congestion and neighborhood parking issues are very similar to Hellman.

Turnbull – Reopen Saturday.

Arroyo Pescadero – Reopen. Due to overgrowth and to promote social distancing, the trails will be encouraged for one-way travel until trails can be mowed.

Sycamore Canyon – Stays closed until the trail can be mowed for safe passage.

Hacienda Hills – Reopen. PARKING LOT CLOSED

Powder Canyon- Reopen. PARKING LOT CLOSED

TRAIL USERS are encouraged to take personal responsibility with the following:

Do not visit public trails and trailheads if feeling sick and/or exhibiting any symptoms of illness.

Follow all posted regulations at trails and trailhead facilities.

Physical distancing of 6 feet always required. No group gathering allowed on trails or in the parking lot.

Limit visit to members of your household only.

Trail users over the age of 2 are required to wear face coverings at trailheads, parking lots and while on the trail.

Consider avoiding popular locations that are prone to crowds.

Alert trail users of your presence and step aside to let others pass.

Prepare for the heat and bring plenty of water.

Bring hand sanitizer and/or disinfecting wipes to wash or sanitize hands frequently.

Practice the leave-no-trace principles on the trails to protect park staff and wildlife. Do not litter.

If trail users demonstrate a lack of compliance with social distancing, wearing masks and group gathering then the trails will be closed.

If other COVID-19 related public safety concerns develop, closures may be necessitated to protect public health and safety.

Thank you, enjoy and stay safe!
