Santa Barbara or Ventura County Trails

Does anyone out there know anything about where I can find some decent jeep trails in Santa Barbara? I've heard that the Santa Ynez Peak trail is pretty decent.

Thanks-

I have run the Camino Cielo both ways along the mountain ridge overlooking SB. It's easy, nice views, family stuff. Just get a DeLorme Southern California Topo Map book in any bookstore.

There is a ranger station down on the north side of the 154 were it goes toward santa ynez, before you get to the big lake. They have info on trails. The ranger station is in the state park there -- right hand turn almost at the bottom of the decent.

Can you let me know what you find out? I live in L.A.

Cool...thanks guys! Hey Doug, would you know how I would access the Camino Cielo trail off the 101? That sounds perfect. is that the same trail that drives along the spine of the mtns?

Thanks-
Brian

That's it. Get the DeLorme book. Exit the 154 from the 101, about 5 miles past downtown. Drive up to the crest and look for the turns. You'll need the book to find it. Take the left side -- its the best drive. Go all the way through -- there's a great moderate trail down into Santa Ynez at the end, if it is open. Otherwise drop down the ocean side paved road at the end -- you'll go by the Reagan ranch!

You might have a lot of fun at the the Superstition Mountain trails and Truck Haven. A little drive into the desert. You should come out for an event. They have anything from easy to hard.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Also there is a Rover group in Ventura. Send me an email and I'll give you the contact info (don't want to post the email address on the web as it will get harvested).
