Ojai: The Pines Camp. A 5 mile round trip hike through the chaparral to a backcountry camp nestled in a grove of pine trees. These trees have been replanted several times after being destroyed by fire. The trail first ascends gently up Horn Canyon and then climbs steeply out of the canyon to The Pines Camp. Along the way are fine views of the Upper Ojai Valley and, on a clear day, of the Pacific Ocean. This is an excellent wildflower hike in the spring. Driving Directions: From downtown Ojai, proceed eastward on State Highway 150 to Carne Lane, turn left (north) and follow Carne for 1.2 miles, where it makes a 90 degree turn to the right and becomes Thacher Road. After driving another 1.4 miles, turn left and enter the campus of Thacher School, just before the road takes another 90 degree bend. Bear right on the paved road as you enter the campus. Follow the road to another Y (marked by a sign saying "Upper Campus"). Take the right branch to the intersection with a dirt road leading to the Gymkhana Field. After crossing a seasonal stream (high clearance vehicle recommended), proceed to the marked trailhead. Parking is limited. The total distance from Highway 150 is 3 miles.
