This is a moderate loop trail to Fishbowls Camp and Cedar Creek Camp in Los Padres National Forest. Both are nice campsites along the trail if you want to make it an overnighter (but it also is a fine day hike). Either one would be about 2 hours from Fishbowls trailhead either clockwise (Cedar Creek) or counter-clockwise (Fishbowls)

Overall little climbing, but there is one steep ridge to cross. Trail is often very narrow and can be steep, in some places requires a bit of search when there is tree fall or vegetation, but just typical in wilderness areas. Like most of the Sespe, little shade and therefore best for cooler months.

This trail goes by Cedar Creek Camp.

Getting Started

Plenty of parking at Fishbowls trailhead. It is a bit of a drive on a dirt road from Lockwood Valley, with some rockier and narrow section, but entirely fine with any passenger car.
