Saturday August 14th
This trail is very well maintained and is mostly in the shade. Its very senic and follows the creek past several swimming holes. We will be following the historic stage coach route, parts of which are still visible today. This is not a strenuous hike and is approximately 5 miles round trip. It is family and dog friendly. We will have lunch at upper Matilija camp ground and plan on a swim or two on the way back out. We will meet a Nordhoff H.S at 8am and carpool to the trail head. We should be back by 1:00pm. As usual bring hat, sunscreen, dress in layers, comfortable hiking shoes, sack lunch and LOTS of water.
