Fishermans Camp Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This hike travels through the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness. The wilderness was created in 1984 and covers over 38,000 acres of rolling hills, mountains, steep canyons, grasslands, coastal chaparral, and oak scrub woodland. It is the largest wilderness area in the Cleveland National Forest. The region receives relatively light usage and can be incredibly hot during the summer. There are secluded microclimate areas that receive much cooler air, which can be pleasant even on the hottest of days. In a few areas, some water flows year-round, although in dry years finding it will not be an easy task."
