The loop is nice, but do it early morning or afternoon. Do not do this in the summer or mid day - you will regret it since there's little to no shade.
Easy to moderate. My first hike in and around Santa Barbara. This was a fun hike with nice vistas.
Moderately challenging hike. Great morning or evening prior to high sun. Beautiful! Dog friendly!
Hiking lower elevations on California trails in June is not the optimum time, choose Spring or Fall. The Aliso Creek runs through the canyon but this time it was completely dry. If there was water, there would be several opportunities to cross the stream to continue the hike.
My first hike in the area. Beautiful vistas, spring flowers, and a few challenges. Perfect loop for beginners or those that have a time limit.
Nice sunny day. Easy hike to take young ones one. Not to hard. Then reward them with the water hole that you view at the top of the summit
This is a great day hike that will give you a great workout and wonderful views. Check out my pictures at http://campingpastor.wordpress.com
