This uphill trail is popular with well- behaved dogs that love the freedom of hiking off leash. The hike rewards their human companions with views at the start from the dramatic caramel sandstone bluffs and peaks to the sweeping vistas over Santa Barbara and across to the Channel Islands. As a bonus, during normal wet winters and springs, seasonal creeks flush through the chaparral landscape.
