The Wheeler Gorge Nature Trail begins not far from the campground. It is a relatively short, loop trail that leads through thick vegetation along the river banks and to a scenic hillside view of the area. Wildflowers are often located along the path.
The 10-mile Ortega Trail, for off-road vehicle use, is popular among experienced riders. Rocky, steep terrain takes the trail to the ridgetop.
The creek flows near some of the campsites and a small swimming hole is available nearby. Fishing is rough in the area and may produce a catch of trout, but the stream is not stocked. Kayaking or canoeing in the creek is not recommended.
