We hiked along Jesusita trail to Inspiration Point, about 7.5mi round trip. The first half of the hike was pretty easy and the second half I would call moderate with a few steep spots and several creek crossings. Still great for a family as long add the kids are old enough or can be carried across a few parts. Not... More

This was truly inspirational. Have to careful to look for signs on trail - not many - use the GPS on phone - great views of the shoreline and the downtown. Go early to beat the crowds.

This trail is definitely a five if you hike it during the week and before 5pm when the locals get out from their busy work day. Don’t even try to go on the weekend unless you plan on at least a two mile hike up a busy road just to get to the trail head. Make sure you do the... More

Jesusita is a great place for a family walk, couples or just to clear your head. Very accessible and easy walk.

My hiking partner and I hiked the Jesusita Trail to Inspiration Point. It was a Friday about 11:00 a.m. Finding the trail head was fairly easy, following the trail was fairly easy once you got into it, but we did get off the path a few times and had to ask some other hikers. Even though the trail to inspiration... More

not only a wonderful place to hick, the sightseeing is amazing, from uphill a view from the ocean and also the beautiful mountains, you can go on single tracks and also go safer on wide trails, a bit tricky to find where to park your car, but wonderful anyway,

Trail is well maintained with varied vistas. Lots of off leash dogs on the day of our hike, which is great if you like them and not if you prefer to be left alone. Take some water along and enjoy the various plant species.

nice hike in that you can make it shorter or longer. Great views over Santa Barbara and the Pacific. Only problem is that you have to park on the road a good ways down on busy days, so plan on that as part of your hike!

This trail is really a main thoroughfare to a dozen routes that can lead you out around the mountain range. It's so gentle, early on, and has some picnic benches, that even if some of your group members don't want to proceed up the more strenuous sections of the trail, they can relax in comfort. Get your shoes on and... More
