Inspiration Point Trailhead
You can't go wrong at any placed named Inspiration point. Taking San Roque Road to Jesusita Trail in just under an 9 mile trip from Carla's Cottages. You'll enjoy hiking through the oaks and sycamores at the lower elevations and the views at the top are inspirational!
This version of the hike starts at Tunnel Trail. There is another way to get here, starting at Jesusita Trail. Beware of kamikaze mountain bikers on this trail. This hike is a relatively moderate hike, especially if you are in good condition. One thing to consider with hiking in Santa Barbara is…
The name says it all! While there are many excellent front country hikes in Santa Barbara, this one is a must. You can summit in 40 min to an hour depending on your pace and the views are truly epic (dare I say, inspirational!)
This is a great hike that takes you to some amazing views of Santa Barbara, the ocean, and the mountains. It takes about 2-1/2 hours round trip and has some shady spots for hotter days. A locals favorite hike.
“You can walk to this new museum, stop in on your way to the funk Zone. located just down the street from Villa Azul.”
“This brewery may seem out of place amid small commercial warehouses, but I think they make some of the best beer in the entire Santa Barbara area.”
“usually have the latest movies. Close to restaurants like Hollister Brewing Company, The Big Kahuna and Starbuks!”
“Fun place to go for a good beer and good food. You will also be able to watch the game if you must lol. ”
