Description

This hike in the outskirts of Santa Barbara leads into the mountains and to the ruins of the Montecito Hot Springs Club.

The hiking along this trail is fairly achievable, although you can expect some rocks and short, steep pitches. While you can choose to turn around at the end of the Hot Springs Trail, the route shown here adds a lollipop loop on to the end for a bit of diversity and a beautiful hike up and along a mountainside.

You'll also reach a spectacular overlook of the Santa Barbara region and the Pacific Ocean! Do note that this loop adds a fair bit of climbing to the overall route, and you can opt out for an easier version.
