SANTA BARBARA COAST- SERIES OF HIKES

Join me on one of CDH’s series of Santa Barbara Coastal Range treks. We’ll hike trails I’ve done before with some of you that are interesting with ocean views sometimes. These hikes are definitely meant to be taken at a slower non conditioning pace, so that we can take in all the wonders this coastline range offers. Therefore, we will hike together as a group and enjoy the beauty that this trek offers. After it concludes, those interested can join me for a late lunch in the Santa Barbara area.

SANTA BARBARA COASTAL RANGE TREK-2 (Gaviota Peak & Hot Springs)

Our second trek in this Santa Barbara Coastal series will be in Gaviota State Park. We’ll start out on the Trespass Trail and then take a side trail to a ridge with Pacific Ocean views and interesting rock formations before heading up to Gaviota Peak. From the peak we’ll drop down the Gaviota Trail to the Hot Springs. Those interested in at least soaking your feet can join me. Once we reach the cars, if time permits, as an option, you can car pool to Nojoqui Falls County Park and hike an additional 1.5 miles round trip to the waterfall which should be flowing nicely after all the rain fall from the previous rains.

There will be a lot of junctions on this event that will keep the Tigers from running to far ahead as I bring up myself and the other Turtles. It’s important to stop and not try to anticipate the hike at these junctions, or you’ll miss out on my planned route.
This area is at least 1.5 hours drive from Thousand Oaks, so keep that in mind when signing on. Devote the whole day to this and don’t sign on if you have other commitments later that day.

Looking forward to sharing another Santa Barbara coastal range trek with you.

MEETUP LOCATION AND TIME: We’ll all meet at 9:30 a.m.

There is a fee to park at the trailhead, so park off the paved road leading up to the trailhead.

EARLIER MEETUP TIME, LOCATION AND DIRECTIONS: For those out my way, we can meet at the Thousand Oaks Park and Ride at the corner of Rancho Rd. and Haaland Dr. NO LATER THAN 7:45 a.m. It’s just south of the 101 Fwy and 23 Fwy interchange. Have a full tank of gas and be willing to drive if needed. Those that don’t drive can help pay for gas. It’s about 1.5 hour’s drive to Gaviota State Park.
