TRAIL WORK

The Angeles Crest 100 Trail Volunteers have joined in efforts to restore and renew trails in the Angeles National Forest. Without the efforts of these volunteers and hundreds others like them, the trails that make this race would cease to exist.

Perform trail maintenance: All runners must complete 8 hours of trail maintenance by July 15th.

Trail maintenance work Schedules are posted on the homepage and at the bottom of this page.  In addition, a monthly schedule will be emailed directly to race entrants. If you would like to sign up please contact us or directly respond to our emails.

We also have to deal with the aftermath of this year’s winter rain on our trails and access roads to perform the trail maintenance work.

If you live in Southern California (South of Fresno), then you will be required to perform your Trail Work in the Angeles National Forest with Gary. However, if you live in Northern California or any other state or country, then perform your Trail Work in the area that you live and run. Trail Maintenance must be performed, submitted, and approved before race weekend.
