Angeles National Forest to reopen after Station Fire

May 13, 2011 12:00:27 AM PDT
Roughly half of the areas shut down after the biggest wildfire in L.A. County history are finally set to reopen.

Authorities will reopen some 98,000 acres in the Angeles National Forest on Monday that were scorched by the Station Fire in 2009.

Those areas are primarily in the northern, southern and eastern portions of the forest and include campgrounds, picnic areas and more than 100 miles of hiking trails.

However, thousands of acres will remain closed, mostly in Big Tujunga Canyon.
