Guided hike explores 2015 Horse Fire area

A free guided hike will examine forest recovery after wildfire on June 24 in the King Range National Conservation Area on the California North Coast.

The five-mile round trip hike will follow the Buck Creek Trail into the area burned by the 146-acre Horse Fire in 2015. The fire burned with varying intensity, so hikers should be able to see differences in the aftermath of the fire.

Participants can meet at 9 a.m. at the King Range Project Office, 768 Shelter Cove Rd., in Whitethorn, and carpool about 45 minutes to the Saddle Mountain Trailhead. The outing will conclude around 3 p.m.

Participants should bring lunch and water and dress for variable weather conditions. There is a steep, 500-foot climb at the end of the hike.

The Lost Coast Interpretive Association and the Bureau of Land Management are sponsoring the hike.
