Cowboy Camp

Colusa County


How to Get There

From Yolo County, Woodland and Davis, take Highway 16 up the Capay Valley.  Once you pass the town of Rumsey, you begin to enter the Cache Creek Canyon.  The road will narrow and you will be driving with the creek on one side and the canyon walls on the other.  Continue on Highway 16 until you’re just about 1 mile south of where it connects to Highway 20.  The large sign for Cowboy Camp will be on your left.  Vehicles must stay on the gravel areas of the parking lot.

The Hike Itself

This is an area set up for equestrians, so there are a long trails budding from this starting point and go up and down the surrounding foothills and connect to other trails in the region, including the Craig Canyon Trail.  It’s a good place to go exploring.  There is also a restroom facility at the trail head and a viewing platform form which you can sometimes see the local herds Tule Elk.
