Directions from Los Olivos: Travel on Forest Road 7N07 northeast for about 22 miles to the Nira Campground and trailhead. The trailhead can be reached by car most of the but there are several seasonal closure gates that can add to the length your hike. One end of the Sisquoc River Trail begins at the end of Lower Manzana Creek Trail near the Manzana Schoolhouse trail camp.

Day hiked from Manzana Schoolhouse to water canyon camp, trail is difficult to follow, and nonexistent at times. Contrary to gps and directions, there is no road access to this trail, sisquoc runs through private property and you will be turned away. We started at Nira trail head and hiked up manzana creek trail. Water throughout both trails, with homesteads and swimming holes.

Beautiful Trail along the Sisquoc river. Lots of great camps, waterfalls and several old homesteads.
