Overview: Bluff Guard Station still serves as an administrative outpost for Forest crews and volunteer crews. It is located 20 miles north of Upper Oso on the Buckhorn Road and at the point where the Grapevine Trail out of the San Cruz drainage crosses the road and then becomes the Indian Trail. Bluff Camp is located just east of the Station.
Bob Burtness Notes
Named after some nearby bluffs, this camp was established in 1931 as a base for Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) crews building the Buckhorn Road.
Jim "ER" Blakley Notes
Indian Trail is one of the most enjoyable trails in the backcountry. It starts at Bluff Camp and descends along the creek of the same name until the creek joins Mono Creek a short distance up stream from the Santa Ynez River. A beautiful section from Pens Camp down to just above Indian Creek Camp was, thankfully, never completed. Although there isn't a designated trail, you can hike with care through the narrows. There are several beautiful water falls and numerous deep pools that provide good swimming and trout fishing.
