First full weekend of hiking trail, beach closures in LA County

It’s the first weekend Los Angeles County beaches and hiking trails are closed. The closure is in response to last weekend’s turnout with thousands of people way too close to each other during this global pandemic. The county public health order includes closure of trails, beaches, piers, public bathrooms, beach access points, and beach bike paths.

All mountain trails, park restrooms closed due to COVID-19

Officials with the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area reminded the public today that all trails and restrooms in Los Angeles County -- including those in its vast area -- are closed until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic, and that park staff will only offer "very limited services" during this time.
