UPDATE:  To be opening soon http://www.habitatauthority.org/2017/04/hellman-park-trailhead-trail-improvements/  The trails will be reopened after the initial work is completed most likely to be in April sometime – pending weather conditions. Check back for updates.

The Hellman Trailhead (Peppergrass and Mariposa Trails) is currently CLOSED and undergoing repairs due to erosion and run-off.  In the meanwhile, for ALTERNATE TRAIL ACCESS click here. Visit http://www.habitatauthority.org/trails/ for other alternative trails to enjoy.

When the trailhead (and trails) reopen NEW TRAIL HOURS will be in effect for Hellman Park Trailhead.  New trail hours will be OPEN 9am-6pm June 1 through September 30, and 9am-5pm October 1 through May 31.

Due to severe water erosion and runoff, the Peppergrass Trail will be improved (regraded) using Los Angeles County Proposition A funds.  Habitat restoration on the trail is being funded by the City of Whittier.  Trails will be temporarily closed during the work. Please check back for updates.
