Take to the Trails
Santa Barbara is a hiker's paradise where you can rise above the sea and into the clouds in the Los Padros National Forest, the Santa Ynez Mountain Range and the Channel Islands National Park, just a short boat trip away. There's a trail to suit every hiker, from the Porter Trail through and around the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden to the short hike to Nojoqui Falls which leads to a beautiful 80-foot waterfall to the Romero Canyon trail that leads to the spine of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Ask any local and they will rattle off their favorites.
