San Mateo Canyon Wilderness Hikes

A protected gem nestled in the Santa Ana Mountains, the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness offers unique trails for those who want to go deeper. The San Mateo Wilderness was created in 1984, mainly due to the efforts of local hikers, and led by Sierra Club member Kenneth S. Croker. His advocacy for the protection and development of trails here has left a legacy for us to enjoy today.
