At more than 154,000 acres, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area is the largest urban national park in the world. The Woolsey Fire of November 2018 devastated this area and it sustained significant damage, with over 100,000 acres burned. We are so grateful to the firefighters and first responders who battled this blaze. It will take years and years before these mountains will look like they did before the fire. We’re hopeful to learn about volunteer efforts to help this area recover so that it can once again be the destination for hiking, biking, rock climbing and camping in Southern California.
