A free guided hike focused on forest recovery after wildfire is set for Saturday, 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 will meet at 9 a.m. at the King Range Project Office, 768 Shelter Cove Rd., Whitethorn, and carpool about 45 minutes to the Saddle Mountain Trailhead.  The outing will conclude at about 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 outing.
