Silver Moccasin Trail from Angeles Crest Highway to Little Pines Loop

On 2-18-12, I hiked a portion of the Silver Moccasin Trail. This hike is mostly through recovering burn areas.  Many burned trees stand relatively alone along hilly parts of the landscape with expansive views.  I often felt like I was trekking through a memorial simultaneously capturing the respect and admiration for what was and the sadness for what is now lost.  With some small patches that appear to have survived with little harm and the forest regenerating itself throughout, this hike offers a nice variety of landscapes to walk through.  The trail is maintained and easy to follow throughout.  At Charlton Flats however, portions of the trail are closed to all users and continuation is achieved by walking about a half mile along the paved road until it meets up again with the trail at the north end of the picnic areas.
