California Central Coast: Horn Canyon Trail

Hello ladies! I’m Caroline and I’m an ambassador for GWH Central Coast. I will be hosting this hike to Horn Canyon Trail near Ojai. This 5-mile out-and-back trail was affected by last year’s Thomas Fire. But, it is slowly recovering. There are reports of wild flowers and a running creek. Should be a beautiful hike through the Los Padres National Forest.

This is a ladies-only hike. All women are welcome. No one will get left behind. Any updates will be posted on the event thread. I will update the event description if anything changes.

If you are a registered member and have your punch card, don’t forget to bring it so I can initial it! If you’re not a registered member, you’re more than welcome to attend anyway! You can find out more about how to become one and get a punch card of your own here: I will not be handing out punch cards at this event. They’re available through purchase of a New Member Kit only. 

What to bring: Water. Bring your own water, at least 3 liters, as it can be very hot and sunny on the trail. Snack: We will be taking a snack break. Ten essentials: As always, it is a good idea to bring the 10 hiking essentials (optional).
