41,000 acres re-opened today

About 41,000 acres of Angeles Forest previously closed due to the Station Fire was re-opened by the Forest Service today.  The re-opening covers a large area of Big Tujunga Canyon south of Big Tujunga Dam.  Notable re-openings include the Stone Canyon Trail, Trail Canyon Trail, and the Delta Flat Recreation Areas.

When hiking in these areas beware of the Poodle Dog Bush, which releases a toxin that causes most people to suffer an itchy rash reaction similar in some ways to poison oak.
