Quatal Canyon's main wash parallels the Chumash Wilderness boundary near Hwy 33, way north of Ojai, California. The nearest post office is Maricopa & you'll hafta drive to Taft CA for groceries. Great backpacking, mountain biking & camping all around this Cuyama Valley. Pinyon pine peaks & red eroded cliffs bind the many wilderness areas surrounding this region.
