San Antonio Trail Survey - 04-19-2015 - by Richard Shiers
Link: San Antonio Trail
Date: 04-19-2015
Surveyor Name:Richard Shiers
Trail description:I started my backpacking trip on Nacimiento Furguson Rd. I hiked up Cone Peak road and then hit the San Antonio trail down to Fresno Camp which is as far as I made it. This trail has not been used much in years and it was quite the adventure. It was completely overgrown and covered with poison oak and blowdowns. Lots of climbing under and over dead trees and even bushwhacking through poison oak almost the entire mile and a half down this trail to Fresno Camp. The trail completely disappeared when I got down to the camp. I found two old campsites at Fresno Camp and there was still water flowing in the San Antonio river. The camp was pretty cool though since I was looking for solitude and this was definitely the place. However, I would not recommend this trail unless you are looking for a challenge and if you want to go further on to San Antonio camp, good luck because I couldn't find the trail.
