Piru Creek

Piru Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Experienced hikers/backpackers can mount a 2-day expedition down Piru Creek, which involves almost no true climbing but rather many miles of riverbank walking and foot-wetting creek crossings. If the water in the creek is flowing too fast, you will want to postpone your trip.

There’s a substantial charge for day use of the recreational area at the end of the road. The area is seldom visited and mostly out of range of cell-phone signals, so it is imperative to contact Los Padres National Forest (805-646-4348) for the latest information on possible flood conditions, wilderness area rules, and logistics."
