Adventure Awaits When You Hike in Santa Barbara

If you’re up for the challenge, there’s a hike for every skill level in Santa Barbara. The breathtaking views might serve as inspiration and motivation to keep you going should you accept the challenge of Inspiration Point, a favorite hiking destination for many Santa Barbarians. Want to take in gorgeous landscapes and mix a little rock climbing in with your hike? Take a moderate hike up Seven Falls, which is perfect for summer hikes. And don’t let the name of Rattlesnake Trail deter you, it gets its name from the winding and curving trails, and not because there are poisonous snakes occupying it (well maybe a couple). If you’re a more experienced hiker, then the Grass Mountain Trail located near Santa Ynez could make for a good option. Take in the beautiful wildflowers and even bring your dog along, too! After all….there is a super bloom.
