|Help Preserve Sierra Madre’s Trails|
Have you noticed that the hiking trails above the City of Sierra Madre (Mt. Wilson Trail and Bailey Canyon Trail) are among the best maintained trails in the Angeles National Forest? This is only because of the work of community volunteers, who work tirelessly and continuously to maintain the trails and keep them safe for everyone.
The necessary supplies and tools used by the volunteers are paid with donations to the Fletcher Trail Maintenance Fund, as neither the City of Sierra Madre nor the US Forest Service provides any funds for supplies or labor for the maintenance of either trail. Without the work of the volunteer trail maintenance crew, the trails would become impassable.
We hope that you know how significantly your donation is needed and appreciated. Mother Nature never takes a break and continually wreaks havoc on the trails. Rain, rockslides, downed trees, wind, wildlife, and continued use by the public all contribute to trail erosion and cause constant severe damage to our trails. The result of all the above is that the trail crew volunteers continue to need even more supplies to repair the damage and make the trails safe and useable for people.
Please help us with this work by sending a tax-deductible donation payable to the
