creek recreation includes fishing, hiking, kayaking, rafting, tubing, gold panning, and finding swimming holes.
People love secluded lakes inside alpine mountains, well away from the city. Folks also love rivers and creeks - of all sizes. Most all of the California National Forest have recreation creeks running thru them. SoCal would be seasonal creeks - which means it often dry up annually, or goes underground.
In the golden west, the desert's dryness reigns, and some smaller creeks are 'seasonal' and tend to dry up every year. The flow stops completely and you are bummed, cuz your hike isn't what you had hoped it would be. There are only a select few creeks for camping in Southern California. Drought conditions are often. Call ahead, ask the field ranger about your creek destination.
The best streams & creeks are located in the higher elevation mountains. If you are seeking that hidden creek with a forest to hike or bike in, or a new fly fishing spot, you can easily find it here on Total Escape. The Sierra Nevada mountains & the NorCal region are the places for real water flow in California.
Been doing this web deal 2 whole decades now. I will inspire you to be OUTSIDE in California. OUT DOORS as much as possible. Hiking, camping, wheelin, or just soaking in the hot springs with the heavenly stars above. Live your life out of doors. Get away from the computers & televisions next weekend!
