The Azalea Glen Trail, the coolest and shadiest pre-Cedar-Fire route in the park, is showcasing some strong signs of botanical rebirth. Amid the ghost forests of closely spaced, blackened tree trunks, a bright green understory of fire-following shrub vegetation is spreading across the ground. Some of the giant canyon live oak trees are sending out new branches and leaves, and seedlings of pines and cedars are setting the stage for a modest recovery of the coniferous forest.
