Puente Hills Rangers

When you are out and about on our trails, you may run into one of our Rangers. The Habitat Authority currently contracts for Ranger services. Rangers are sworn California peace officers and wildland fire fighters whose duties include:

  • Securing trailheads daily
  • Closing trails during hazardous conditions
  • Providing extra patrol during high fire threat
  • Ticketing for illegal activity
  • Debris removal
  • Vandalism repair
  • Trail repair
  • Assisting with annual fuel clearance activities

Exploring Wildflower Blooms in the Puente Hills

If you’ve been out walking recently, you know that the Puente Hills have burst into bloom! Good rains this winter have meant we all get to enjoy beautiful wildflowers this spring and there is no better place to take in a view of all the bright blooms than on one of our trails. Once a month our volunteers take a group out to explore the beautiful trails. You join and can sign up here!
