What's the difference between New Cuyama and Old Cuyama? About 5 miles!
Since Old Cuyama is basically a flood basin for the Cuyama River, a long time ago they moved the majority of 'town' westward. Looks like the old Buckhorn has finally gotten a complete and total make-over. WOW. How exciting! (can't wait to visit) This country area is a prime biker route and awesome drive west from here. The location is the middle of nowhere. New Cuyama is an agriculture mecca, with some cattle grazing and oil drilling nearby. The entire Cuyama River Valley (along Hwy 166) borders Los Padres National Forest. General store and gasoline, that's about it. Oh yeah, and wildflowers!
