Camuesa Connector Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This route climbs along the southern flank of Camuesa Peak from the Santa Ynez River to Buckhorn-Camuesa Road. Hot and dry in the summer, this trail is better known as a mountain bike and/or equestrian route, but it can still make for a fine day trip on foot."
--Craig R. Carey, Hiking and Backpacking Santa Barbara and Ventura (Wilderness Press).
"Located in the San Marcos Pass within the Los Padres National Forest. Highlights: Spectacular views of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Hazards: Dirt bikes and other off-road vehicles. Forest Adventure Pass required."
--Mark Ross & Brad Fine, Mountain Biking Southern California (Falcon Guides).
"This well graded road heads east from Upper Oso Campground, climbing and descending the canyon north of the Santa Ynez River to get around Gibraltar Reservoir. Camuesa Road, the area's main access road, has connection points with many other roads and trails."
--Delaine Fragnoli, Mountain Biking California's Central Coast Best 100 Trails (Fine Edge Productions).
