Angeles National Forest

The Chilao Visitor Center Pictures taken 4-20-2008.

West Fork Ranger Station (Cabin roof in the middle of being repaired).

Built in 1900 alongside the West Fork of the San Gabriel River and north of Mt. Wilson, this historic cabin was the first ranger station built in California with federal government funds $75.00.

In the late 1920's new roads into the mountains changed both the method of travel into the forest and the choice of the main travel routes, leaving the cabin in a relative isolation. The cabin was moved in the 1983 to protect the building from decay and vandalism.
