South Fork – Area Recreation

The area offers beautiful scenery and some great hiking and horseback riding trails. Trails along Big Rock Creek towards Islip Saddle are popular, as is the Manzanita Trail towards Vincent’s Gap or west to the Devil’s Punchbowl. The secluded area is also great for stargazing. You may also catch a fish or two in the creek. Wildlife viewing is also great here with opportunities to see Big Horn Sheep.

Other campgrounds in the area include Sycamore Flats and Big Rock. Saddleback Butte State Park is also about 22 miles away.
