Los Padres National Forest


The Los Padres National Forest features mountains, streams, rivers and beaches. Weather can vary throughout the forest and altitude ranges from sea level on the Monterey Ranger District, to almost 9,000 feet on the Mt. Pinos Ranger District.Accessible Recreation OpportunitiesA continuing goal of the Los Padres National Forest is to make the recreational opportunities accessible to persons with disabilities. Although many of these areas already have wheelchair-accessible campsites, restrooms and trails, we are continuing to make more sites accessible.The Forest Service has adopted the universal design approach to site accessibility which takes into consideration the differing physical capabilities of visitors. Areas by Ranger District that are currently accessible are listed here. (Not all locations/facilities are 100% accessible.) Because we are continually adding new accessible sites, please call ahead to the Ranger District for more information.

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
