Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!
Near the beginning of the Horn Creek Trail, there should be signage for the Rainbow Trail. From the Horn Creek TH, follow the trail for about 1/2? mile or so to a four-way junction. Take the right fork to intersect the Rainbow Trail, in the direction of Dry Creek. Overall distance is perhaps 3/4 mile to here. Follow the Rainbow Trail north for another third of a mile until it intersects the Dry Creek Trail. The climb for Horn Peak begins at this intersection.
At-large camping is available a little beyond the trail head where the road ends in a loop. At our last visit in 2000, there were no facilities at all here. Remember that if you camp here, you are very close to the Horn Creek Ranch so your campsite is not very private and private property is close by.
