The south segment of the Tenaja Trail follows Tenaja Canyon down to its confluence with San Mateo Canyon. The route takes you down and later all the way back up, so remember that if the day is warm or you feel fatigued, you can reverse your course at any time. Tenaja is Spanish for “bowl,” and you may note that the canyon was named for its natural stone basins that collect water.
