From the publisher: Santa Barbara is a captivating, inviting community that is located in a natural, beautiful setting along California's Pacific coast. The city is located 90 miles north of Los Angeles and 100 miles south of San Luis Obispo. The temperate climate and refreshing ocean breezes, very similar to the Mediterranean, have distinguished this area as "the jewel of the American Riviera." The landscape includes mountainous terrain, preserved forests and wilderness areas, and stretches of undeveloped coast, allowing this scenic area to have miles of quiet, secluded hiking trails.

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. Straightforward directions and clear maps accompany every hike.
