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 limited so get there early. There are a lot of mosquitos in the area so you may want to bring along some bug spray. Camping is allowed in this area but NO FIRES.

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)
