Matilija Creek Trail

Saves: 89
Check-ins: 3
Family-friendly, dog friendly, and brimming with gorgeous scenery, this river walk is a nice way to spend a Saturday or Sunday with friends and family. Be prepared for an invigorating trek - this trail is an out and back route lasting almost 9 miles. To get there take Hwy 101 to Hwy 33 North to Matilija Canyon Road, then drive to the Forest Service gate. (Submitted by Otilia Baker)

If you’re planning on going on this hike, I recommend taking sunscreen, lots of water, good shoes, and enjoy it. It’s not one of the easiest hikes, but it’s not so difficult. The challenging part is the length, but if you can do that, it’s a breeze. At one point around this exact location of the photo you will need to follow arrows and/or circles to continue on the path. It’s a little fun, but can be confusing for a first timer.
