Here’s an opportunity for our experienced beginner Trekkers to enjoy this beautiful area in Santa Barbara that our Intermediate Trekkers have done in the past. But this version is much shorter and far less elevation gain. As you can see from the photo above, there is a creek (San Roque) that the Arroyo Burrow trail follows and we’ll have lots of shade along the way. We’ll start out from Stevens Park and end the hike there as well. Those interested can plan on having a picnic there and those not interested in doing so, can head home.
MEETUP LOCATION AND TIME: Stevens Park in Santa Barbara AT 9:00 AM (SEE MAP FOR EXACT LOCATION)
EARLIER MEETUP LOCATION: The Thousand Oaks Park and Ride at the corner of Rancho Rd. and Haaland Dr. NO LATER THAN 7:45 a.m. It’s just south of the 101 Fwy and 23 Fwy interchange. Have a full tank of gas and be willing to drive if needed. Those that don’t drive can help pay for gas ($10/person). It’s about an hour’s drive to the trailhead.
