Fishbowls and Cedar Creek Loop Trail | Los Padres National Forest, CA


This is a loop trail in the Sespe Wilderness which is a section of Los Padres National Forest (California). We started at Fishbowls Trailhead where there is a place to leave the car next to the Grade Valley Road.

From the Fishbowls Trailhead, the Fishbowls Trail climbs over a small hill before descent towards Piru Creek. The footpath follows Piru Creek upstream and leads through some rich scenery plenty of huge pines. After hiking around 6 miles, the route arrives at the  Fishbowls campground.

We left the Fishbowls campgroung behind and the pathway climbs up a ridge, moving away from Piru Creek as it makes its way towards Cedar Creek Trail. This part of the route offers some expansive panoramic views of countryside around.

The southern part of the Fishbowls Trail is more mountainous and reaches an elevation of 1,776 meters at its highest point. 

About 1.5 miles from Fishbowls campground, the way arrives at the intersection with Cedar Creek Trail. The path on the left leads to Cedar Creek campground.

The Cedar Creed Trail is named for the California incense cedars that grow in the area.

The Cedar Creek Trail continues downstream for another 2.5 miles before reaching the Cedar Creek Trailhead, near the Grade Valley Road. From here we returned to Fishbowls Trailhead turning left, and continuing along the road.
