This was a hike that offered a lot of different views. From the start, you are hiking through typical southern California chaparral. This turned into green meadows where we found many cows out grazing. While there was some water here, we passed on filtering, as I do not like drinking cow patty flavored water. The trail down into the canyon was very steep and had a lot of loose rock. But once you hit the bottom, there is a small creek to rest your feet.
Camped in San Mateo creek area for the night. The creek had good flow, and filtered well. Made the loop back up to Ortega highway to complete the trip.
Would recommend the trip as a good spring time getaway
