The easiest and most kid-friendly of the many hiking trails that formerly graced the mountains behind Santa Barbara. Take this hike in memory of what has been lost and in gratitude for what remains.

It's a beautiful trail with a lot of things to see. Amazing scenery, with the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other side. The 500+m climbing and ~7km long trail helped overcome the jetlag.

This was truly inspirational. Have to careful to look for signs on trail - not many - use the GPS on phone - great views of the shoreline and the downtown. Go early to beat the crowds.

Trail is well maintained with varied vistas. Lots of off leash dogs on the day of our hike, which is great if you like them and not if you prefer to be left alone. Take some water along and enjoy the various plant species.
