Amazing hike. Best in Santa Barbara *if you like mixing in a little rock scrambling. Five Stars!!! Bring good shoes that grip rock.
Fun bouldering. Lots of different rock and sizes makes it a bit tricky. Near the base of Seven Falls you can take a rope line up to the main trail. We started about 3pm and parking was easy plus not as crowded. Overall moderate hike, perfect if you only have a couple of hours.
My favorite time to go is in February. I love this kind of rock climbing so we climbed up the stream itself and it was amazing. Short and sweet, great overall workout. I always feel the hardest part is the hike up the residential to get to the hike. If you can't find close parking near the top you are in for a major pre-hike.
March 2016 - there is water!
Good challenging climb. Not kidding when saying Rick hopping on this trail. Glad I made the climb.
Popular hike in Santa Barbara. Parking can be tricky sometimes; you may have to walk 1/2-mile just to get to the trail head! Very fun, you can stick to the trail or some people boulder up along the river.
