This area is Open

Agua Blanca Trail (19W10)


Length: 11.4 miles

Difficulty: moderate to Log Cabin Camp, difficult to Saddle Skirt Camp

From Highway 126 turn north on Piru Canyon Road.  Drive 6 miles to Lake Piru Gatehouse, pay the entrance fee and drive 2.3 miles to the launch ramp where parking is available.

From the launch ramp, hike 4.2 miles north on Piru Canyon Road to the old Blue Point Campground which is closed. Walk through the gate on left before the stream crossing. Follow the dirt road up Piru Creek for 1.2 miles and at the junction turn left (west) to the Agua Blanca Trail, where the Sespe Wilderness begins.

Log Cabin Camp, above Devil's Gateway, is 4.3 miles from the trailhead. The Pothole Trail (18W04) intersects the trail near Log Cabin Camp. Continuing on, the Agua Blanca Trail is barely passable for hiking and is definitely not recommended for horseback riders. Poison oak along the trail is unavoidable. The Agua Blanca is one of the most scenic trails on the Ojai Ranger District.
