The San Gabriel Mountains National Monument is a great place to get away from the grind of everyday life in SoCal. You might not have time for a long weekend in the Sierras but you can easily make it here for a quick overnight or a relaxing weekend.

The Horse Flats Campground is located 29 miles up Highway 2 from Interstate 210. You will turn left at the Santa Clara Divide Road(this intersection is also known as 3 Points). 3 miles down the road you will turn left to enter the campground. I have camped here a few times and its always been pretty quiet. The sites are $12 per night and are first come first serve. Make sure to bring water, they do not have running water at this site. I have never seen horses here, but there are corrals near a few of the spots. There are vault toilets(which were pretty well maintained every time I've been). When planning your trip make sure there aren't any fire restrictions (https://www.fs.usda.gov/recare...)

The Silver Moccasin Trial is a 53 mile trail that runs next to the campgrounds (near site 11).

Camp at Horse Flats Campground Reviews

Love that it is so close to LA. But, there are too many flies! We are in nature, but the flies were even driving my dogs crazy. Be prepared for them and you'll be fine.
