With erosion threatening the Flint Canyon Trail, La Cañada Flintridge officials are hoping a $157,000 effort to stabilize an adjacent slope will save a part of La Cañada's loop trail and a key connection to Pasadena. The two-mile trail runs through the Flintridge area in the southeast part of the city, connecting Hahamongna Watershed Park in Pasadena on the east with Cherry Canyon on the west. The Flint Canyon Trail also connects to the Arroyo Seco trail, which leads north to the Gabrielino Trail and Angeles National Forest.

Moore was red in the face due to all the attention he was suddenly receiving.
