This favorite local route begins with a short trip up a dirt access road before heading off the main trail onto a shaded singletrack. Follow the creek for a 2-mile uphill workout before merging back with the dirt road and returning on a long, meandering downhill with panoramic views of the Pacific. Initially developed by the Chumash Indians as a means of obtaining food and trade from over the mountain in the Santa Ynez Valley, the Romero Canyon Trail currently encompasses both a singletrack trail that follows the creek and a wide, flat, dirt access road that winds through the canyon above the creek.
