Short 3-4 mile downhill hike above and along San Mateo Creek brings you to Fisherman's Camp (San Mateo Canyon Trail, Tenaja Trail, and Tenaja Falls Trail). San Mateo Canyon continues another 9.3 miles beyond the junction and you will find grassy stretches, cool Creekside oak and sycamore woodlands, and broad open areas. This trail provides some of the finest day and overnight hiking trips in the wilderness...best times of the year are fall, winter and spring. This trail is good for all skill levels and we will go at moderately leisurely pace! This trail is long but we will only be going down to Fisherman’s Camp and then turning around and heading back up. The trail should have a good amount of shade for a good portion of the way. There are exposed areas also so remember SPF and a hat. 
There is a possibility that there will be bugs! Be prepared with bug spray 
