  • Baron Ranch Trail

    The Baron Ranch Trail winds its way through an active agricultural operation, up a riparian coastal canyon, and through coastal chaparral to an elevation of 1,216 feet. The Baron Ranch trail is an approximate six mile loop up and back from the trail head.  Views along the canyons open up to reveal the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands.

    Note:  This trail is restricted for use by only pedestrians/hikers at this time.  DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THIS TRAIL. Currently the trail is open Saturday, Sunday and Monday, but will be open every day in the future. The pedestrian gate may be locked by accident on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, but the trail is open unless a notice is posted that it is closed for a particular reason.

  • From the ranch gate the trail follows the main road turning inland and heading up into Quemado Canyon. At about the 2.5 mile mark the trail branches forming a loop up into the mountains.
  • Directions from the South:

    1) Hwy 101 North, 2.4 miles past Refugio Road exit turn right at road crossing onto Arroyo Quemada Ln., just past a yellow sign indicating “cross-traffic ahead”, before reaching Tajiguas Landfill. There is no northbound deceleration lane, so the turn-off must be anticipated.

    2) Immediately turn left onto Calle Real and proceed approximately ¾ mile until the road reaches
    a white gate and a street sign that says “End”.

    Directions from the North:

    1) Hwy 101 southbound, 2 miles past View Point turn off (at Arroyo Hondo) first left across Highway 101 is to the Tajiguas Landfill and the second left is to Baron Ranch. Turn left off of 101 then an immediate left on Calle Real and to the end of the road which is the entrance to Baron Ranch.

    2) Immediately turn left onto Calle Real and proceed approximately ¾ mile until the road reaches
    a white gate and a street sign that says “End”.
