Claremont Hills Wilderness Park, I walked around there this morning since my sister is visiting from chilly Portland.
V79 on the marker, it's just before the 2.5 mile marker on the Burbank Canyon side. Up above the road and below the use trail on the ridge, I couldn't get a good angle for a clear picture.


Shot of the triangle.



Where it is on the 'trail'.

Similar yellow angle iron post with inverted steel triangle were used on the San Bernardino National Forest. The Forest was divided into blocks A-Z, AA-ZZ. Each block had a hard copy folder with map showing numbers. Most peaks were shown with the ridges for dozer fire breaks. Water sources, hellispots, & Fire Camps. Dozer lines were assessed for accessibility to a dozer and estimates were made on time to construct a line. It would be my guess that the Angeles National Forest had the same.

This was done before GPS, Computers, Cell Phones.

"Pre-attack markers"? Is that the official name for them? Any public resources available with info about them? Thanks.

This one was found on Lower Lytle Creek Ridge near Keen BM. You can see in the close-up that there used to be some letters and numbers, but they are unreadable now.

These aren't triangular, but they're the same sort of thing. The far end of Ontario ridge has at least two markers:

VH16 (Turtle's Beak):




VH8(somewhere about point 7792)

It's probably U 79, because I found U 77 further up the ridge yesterday.

Barley Flats had some triangular signs near the entrance gate.





And then there was the one at Thorn BM.
