Baron Ranch Group Run
Just eight months ago the Baron Ranch Trails and the surrounding landscape were devastated by the Alisal Fire. The chaparral has been greening up month-by-month but still has a long way to go to be fully healed. The Arroyo Quemado Trail from Calle Real to Camino Cielo was hard hit by the fire and winter rain events, but trail crews have been out addressing a wide range of post-fire issues. In spite of the fire damage, the trail offers extraordinary vistas as you climb the back of the canyon to the crest of the Santa Ynez Mountains. The elevation at Camino Cielo is 2500 feet.
Distance options over the 12-mile out and back route include 6 miles, 12 miles, and a double out and back for 24 miles.
Volunteers will be at the trailhead to greet runners, offer a free Trails Council bandana, and pop open an ice chest of cold beverages as folks make their way back to the trailhead.
In an effort to get more people to know about the trail we are asking runners to share their experiences and post their times for the Arroyo Quemado Trail. If you use Strava, please join the Island View Trail Run Group
