Horse Pasture Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Horse Pasture Trail is a lightly traveled trail off the far southern end of Tassajara Road. The trail leads to Willow Creek, linking Tassajara Road with Arroyo Seco. This hike along the first 1 .4 miles of the trail leads to Horse Pasture Camp, a quiet, out-of-use campsite on the banks of seasonal Horse Pasture Creek. The camp sits on a beautiful creekside flat inside the Ventana Wilderness boundary."

"This scenic trail leads to The Narrows on Tassajara Creek, a series of gorgeous pools and small waterfalls in a narrow canyon. The hike begins on the Horse Pasture Trail and descends down a side canyon, passing a waterfall in a rocky gorge. After exploring the cascades, the trail then loops upstream to Tassajara Hot Springs, located on the monastic Zen Mountain Center grounds at the very end of Tassajara Road."

Hiked it on April 13. In pretty good shape, only one fallen tree that could be passed over. Fairly steep at the beginning, but with great ocean views. Then it levels off through scattered forest and clearings with good views.
