Trail Quest: Matias Potrero

Hidden 25′ waterfall near Camuesa Connector Trail

Made a hike to Matias Potrero several weeks ago, starting from First Crossing. Along the way I visited a hidden waterfall near Camuesa Connector Trail. Last summer I felt called to venture up the canyon and discovered a dry waterfall and made a note to come back in the spring. From there, I continued up to Matias Potrero.

This article appear in section A of the April 29th, 2019 edition of Santa Barbara News-Press.
