Get Lost In These 4 National Forests In Southern California

When most people think of Southern California, the image of a forest isn’t often the first thing that comes to mind. But those of us who live in this beautiful part of the country know that our immense national forests with expansive wilderness areas are one of the many reasons we can’t help but sing SoCal’s praises. While everyone else is out exploring the beaches of Southern California, you’ll find many of us local folks spending our recreational time getting lost in the woods of these four national treasures.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

As mentioned previously, make sure you have a National Forest Adventure Pass before you park your vehicle for the day at any of these national forests. You’ll also want to pack some water and light snacks. But most importantly, bring a sense of adventure as there’s nothing more satisfying than exploring Southern California.
