Alejandro Trail is in great shape from start to finish (Colson Saddle to La Brea Creek). I've heard rumors that a Santa Maria based mtn biking club has been keeping it open and it shows. The poison oak was an issue only at the camp. Honestly the camp was quite dismal and by far the worst part of the trail. The FS would be wise to move the camp into a more open area, theres a good candidate about 100 yards up stream. The water was on and off through out the canyon and there was water (albeit blackish and weak) at the camp. Really a nice trail and worth checking out.

Did this loop twice in the last week, before and after storms. Beautiful, mostly easy to follow. Nice vistas of snow on Sierra Madre Ridge. Moderate poisin oak, a few ticks as well. Returned to Colson Saddle via a small trail not shown on the map that followed Rattlesnake Canyon a ways then climbed to meet the road route.hills
