An easy Santa Barbara hike catering to members that find the CDH Santa Barbara series too difficult. We’ll take on two parks (Honda Valley and Shoreline) before having lunch at Brophy Bros. clambar and restaurant.
HONDA VALLEY PARK
This park features a natural landscape of Oaks, Eucalyptus, and Arroyo Hondo creek. The trail starts out with a view of Santa Barbara’s coastline before dropping down and following the Creek. It’s a very short hike of less than two miles before we get back in the cars and drive two miles too Shoreline Park.
From a woodsy setting we now will hike along the open coastline in Shoreline Park for about a mile via a walk way on the bluff or along the beach (if the tide is low enough). I’ll try to do the beach heading over to Brophy Bros. for lunch and then the bluff back to the cars after lunch. This way, after lunch, we’ll have an easy one mile walk back to the cars.
BROPHY BROS. CLAMBAR RESTAURANT
I hope to beat the crowds at this popular seafood restaurant by arriving there for lunch between 11:30 and 12:00 pm.

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 8:00 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 a one hour drive to Honda Valley Park.
