The Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council appreciates your support. Our volunteer, nonprofit organization continues to be dedicated to establishing and maintaining the public trail system throughout the Santa Monica Mountains through partnerships with public and private sectors.
During the year your financial support has allowed us to:
  • Establish new signage in various locations throughout the mountains
  • Continue to maintain the trails in the Santa Monica Mountains

  • Pursue critical rights-of-way in the trails systems
  • Coordinate with government agencies to ensure public access is maintained for trail users
