Rancho Nuevo/Deal Canyon Loop Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Rancho Nuevo and Deal Canyons are a beautiful way to experience the backcountry of the Ojai district of the Los Padres National Forest and the wild expanse of the Dick Smith Wilderness. Rancho Nuevo Canyon climbs along a creek and skirts narrows, crossing back and forth through lush and vibrant gorges reminiscent of southern Utah. The creek flows year-round during times of heavy rainfall, but will dry up in spots during seasons of low precipitation."
