Area Status: Open
Horn Canyon Trail - Ojai Ranger District

 Horn Canyon Trail (22W08)

 Length: 5 miles

 Difficulty: moderate to difficult

The Horn Canyon Trail is accessible from McAndrew Rd. Approximately half mile walk to primary access point. Thacher School has placed signage indicating how to pass over the school’s road. The trail then crosses Sisar Road (4N15), and ends at Hines Peak Road, about midway between Chief Peak and Topatopa Bluff.

The Pines Camp has three campsites set underneath Coulter pine trees that were planted after the 1948 fires. A few of the trees were lost during the Wheeler Fire of 1985, but the majority remain to provide a nice shady camp setting. Some trees were starved out during the drought of 2012-2016. Water is sometimes available at a spring behind the camp.

Horn Canyon Trail is most commonly used as a day hike route but can be part of a larger trip into the Sespe or looped in as part of a long mountain bike ride with other nearby trails.
