GTA Myths Wiki

Angel Pine is a small country town and a prominent mythical location in Whetstone in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Angel Pine is the only settlement in Whetstone and the most remote town in San Andreas, with the nearest civilization of San Fierro several in-game hours drive away.

The town is likely the heart of the San Andreas logging industry, with logs from the operations at The Panopticon site thought to be destined for the town’s large sawmill for processing and shipping. Angel Pine residents live in the shadow of nearby Mount Chiliad, which dwarfs the town sheltered by the thick canvas of Shady Creek’s forest to the east and northeast.

This town thought of naming Angel Pine due to the surrounding forest of pine trees. Thought players have theorized that Angel Pine may also take its name from the Angel on Rock phenomena. However, this seems unlikely as the rock is situated a substantial distance from the town in neighbouring Flint County and may only be due to pareidolia. Others believe the town’s name may stem from the Mount Chiliad Angel phenomena.

Several maps are found in some trash cans near the local Cluckin’ Bell restaurant, showing beta maps of GTA Vice City.

Angel Pine Shanty

A dilapidated shack which players have termed the Angel Pine Shanty. It is located unassumingly in open grassland to the southwest of town. Myth hunters believe it to be the habitat of one of the locally reported cryptids, such as Bigfoot or Piggsy. However, no substantial evidence to support this claim.
