Two Springs Hike
Located on top of Pine Mountain are two seldom if ever visited and uniquely different Fresh Water Springs. On the Cuyama side of the mountain we have the McGuire Springs which was a Basque shepherd camp from the late 1800’s. This fresh water spring is located beneath ancient majestic pines with stunning views of the Cuyama Badlands.
On the other side of the mountain lies Chorro Spring. On a clear day you can see beyond the Channel Islands. This site was an important part on the Chumash Indian Trail. The spring actually begins beneath a giant boulder. There are also many ancient carvings in this area.
This hike is approximately 5 miles total and begins at 7,000 ft. elevation. This is not a very technical trail, only a few steep hills, but is filled with breathtaking 360° views and the smell of fresh pines and wild flowers.
We will meet at Nordhoff High School parking lot @ 8am and then carpool to the Pine Mountain trail, (approx. 35 mile drive to trail). Total time for the day approx. 6 hrs.
Things you will need for this hike:
• Water, sack lunch, snacks.
• Hat, sunscreen, bug spray, comfortable hiking shoes.
• Camera, spirit of adventure.
- Cost is $25 per person / group discounts available!
