Robert Stone released the 4th Edition of his Santa Barbara hiking book last month. Here’s the scoop:
Day Hikes Around Santa Barbara includes 116 day hikes within a 65-mile radius of the city. Most trails are located in natural, undeveloped areas, including 80 miles of coastline, the Santa Ynez Mountains, and the Santa Ynez River Valley. A few trails through urban areas are included as well. A wide range of hikes accommodates amateur to avid hikers, ranging from coastal beach walks to steep canyon climbs. Highlights include oceanside bluffs, beaches, tidepools, wetland preserves, sculpted gorges, rock outcroppings with caves, numerous waterfalls, secluded pools in mossy canyons, mountain ridge trails, historical sites, and stunning overlooks of the Pacific.
Straight-forward directions, statistics, and a map for every hike makes these adventures stress free. Dog access information is included, as well as a thorough index.
Companion guides include Day Hikes Around Ventura County, Day Hikes Around San Luis Obispo County, Day Hikes On the California Central Coast and Day Hikes On the California Southern Coast.
