This is a very popular trip with my Boy Scouts. The trail is in good shape, and there is usually plenty of water in the creek. On this particular outing the lower camps were occupied. We pushed on to the Middle Camp which is a few miles in. Watch for Poison Oak (abundant) and rattlesnakes (seen a couple). This is a great trail for any easy backpacking trip any time of year.

Trail was quick and easy to follow. Plenty of water in the creek - we used large gravity filters for a larger group. Lots of poison oak, saw a few snakes, wild flowers were blooming and the camps were spacious.

Check fire restrictions and practice good LNT, guys. Have fun!

This is a tiny section of the Upper North Fork Matilija Trail and is the most boring section. It just gets to the first (rather overused) camp of four. Turn the corner, it just gets better.
