Interpretive Signage – Burkhart Trail
AMIGOS/Emerald Necklace Group has worked collaboratively with Forest Service Staff and members of the San Gabriel Mountains Community Collaborative to develop this signage for a number of key trailhead sites within the San Gabriel National Monument below are the signs created for the Burkhart Trail and an excerpt of the trail description.
All signage artwork shown here is downloadable just click on the sign.
From this trailhead, the Burkhart Trail drops down to Little Rock Creek, winding through shady groves of Incense Cedar and Jeffrey Pine. It then climbs to the Burkhart Saddle, crossing mountain creeks which drain into the parched Mojave Desert below.
Burkhart Trail Details
Far to the north, the trail connects to the Devil’s Punchbowl, where tilted layers of sedimentary rock frame an arid landscape of Joshua trees, Junipers, Pinyon Pine, and Desert Chaparral. The trail continues east to the South Fork of Big Rock Creek, home to rare and threatened populations of Mountain Yellow Legged Frog.
