Pioneer Days Hike Into History Update, Another Change In Plans  --  Due to hazardous conditions and ongoing fire problems, and the closure of the Angeles National Forest by the Forestry Service, this year's 7th Annual Hike into History was cancelled. Lizzie's Trail Inn was still open all morning, serving lemonade, offering visitors a look at a special part of Sierra Madre history, the mule, and special arrangements were made with the US Postal Service to have a special Post Office cancellation at the Trail Inn.

Thanks to Dr. Bill White for providing these photos of the event.

Hike into History Purpose:  To promote Sierra Madre Mountain history and hiking.  Promote Lizzie's Trail Inn Historical Mountain Museum.  Promote Pioneer Days, this event is usually the lead Pioneer Days Event, and this year had been scheduled to take place two weeks prior to  the main Pioneer Days weekend of events.  This event is not a fundraiser, fees charged are used for this event.  If there are remainder funds from the event, they go to Lizzie's Trail Inn Historical Museum.  Traditionally the hike goes to an old time famous camp resort site of the San Gabriel Mountains.
