Eight months after the deadly and destructive Woolsey Fire hit the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, all 67 miles of the park's most famous trail are now reopened to the public.
The Nov. 2018 Woolsey Fire burned 88 percent of all National Park Service land in the area, including 112 miles of trails and more than 30 structures.
The deadly and destructive California wildfire also destroyed 120 feet of retaining wall and littered the trail with dangerous tree limbs.
The California Conservation Corps and the Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council said they worked diligently to make the trail passable and to restore full trail connectivity to the popular trail.
On Thursday, the final six miles of the Backbone Trail that had remained closed since November reopened. Take a look below in photos.
