Fishermans Camp Trail is a 3.1 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Lake Elsinore, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October.
This out-and-back hike follows a well-maintained trail down into Tenaja Canyon, where it terminates at Fisherman's Camp, a small but nice backcountry campsite that requires advanced permission to use.
parking is very limited at this place get there early! I hit the trail around 7 in the morning and hiked for almost one hour,easy going but moderate coming back up.LOTS of bugs!! mosquitos ,mosquitos,mosquitos,everywhere.I still enjoyed my time there ,beautiful place!!lots of water down by the camping area,bring a good water filter!i used the Sawyer mini and it worked out great for me,it was very hot so I drink about 50 litters or so .seen a rattle snake in the trail coming up,be on a look out,they are defnetly out and about.all in all a great place to camp but NO FIRES !! loved this place and will be back again.
Short hike to fishermans but you can easily add on a lot of additional miles from here. Very pretty.
this was ok the road was narrow not in the beast condition for a car the trail were narrow as well
Great Hike ! There's tons of water ...
Pretty hike. Kids loved it! Went when the water was rushing after the rain.
had a great time, BUT..the little repellent resistant black flies where a challenge. ..once night time came it was beautiful . so quiet. some kind of bird that sounded like a monkey woke me up around 2:30am and sounded off till sun rise life is good, God is great
July 11th 2016. The app says 3.1 miles. Remember that this is only one way! The trail was a little overgrown but that is expected on a trail that is not well known. We passed fisherman camp and went on to the falls. After the falls we walked up the road back to our vehicle. The total distance with the falls was 8 miles. By 10am it was already over 90 outside. I went through 3 liters of water.
started at 8am it started to warm up quick. bring water. a bit of pestering by some yellow looking flies as it got warmer maybe just the season. beautiful canyon and mountain views. the creek was dry. little shade bring a hat. declines into canyon campimg area and if you go back the same route incline up back to trailhead. lots of shade in creek area. lots of birds singing saw plenty of lizards including a horned lizard and a toad inside of the sign in box (i set em free)
one of my favorites to hike so many beautiful scenes
