Hikes to Do Map

Is this trail still closed? Visiting mid-march.

I believe it's closed as when you use the "directions" feature, there is no route.

The trail has a has a sign saying it’s closed. The trail is fine until it turns to single track heading up to the ridge, the trail becomes slidey and quite sketchy in parts, very narrow and lots of sliding shale. Parts of the trail are gone due to the fire and it’s difficult to follow.

Closed due to the mud slides

Can anyone confirm if this trail is open? It seems like it is closed due to the wildfires, according to this site: http://www.santabarbarahikes.com/

Is this trail really closed? Im visiting in February.

This trail is open

loved it went after it rained

2 mike uphill workout on the beginning.
Constant views of the pacific on the way back doe . Took my sister here for her first time in Santa Barbara and we loved it!

Great, well-marked trail. I tracked the distance as closer to 4-miles from the trailhead.

Uphill more than anticipated. Next time I'll let my dog swim at a lower pool and be content with that. Lots of pools.

Still plenty of water this time around.

Nice and a fun hike with the kids.

The last bit to the peak is a little sketchy but do it - it’s totally worth it.

Gorgeous views, barely anyone there, well marked. Good uphill stretches. You can make the hike harder by moving faster or you can stroll.

Great hike. Didn't do all of the loop but saw amazing views....really worth it.

great morning workout with beautiful views and vantage points.

The trail along the creek is lovely and the pool with the waterfall is beautiful, but the hike to the top is nothing special, and the end of the trail is a road, which is pretty disappointing.

Took romero canyon to the top of Camino cielo following the "Romero canyon trail", not "old Romero road".. 2.5 hours round trip out and back, well with worth the views! Trail is well kept and easy to follow

Loved this hike! Long but a great workout!

It was a pretty tough hike but definitely worth it.

It's an awesome spot to be, but don't head up without the owner's permission.

My family and I were up for a little round up with the owner and his family, so I got to enjoy the sights for a bit.

The people here bitching about the No Trespassing signs are probably the same type who carve their names into the trees. People with zero respect for the neighborhood, or the Trees themselves. These trees are historical and go back to the late 1800's. The signage is due to the youngsters and those without respect. If you look respectful and are polite to the neighbors, they do not call on you. just hiked this yesterday. If you pack it in, pack it back out. Don't spray paint or carve into the tree's. Grow up and act like an adult.

There was a race going on the day we did this race, which created some extra traffic on the trail. Overall, nice views of the ocean but the humidity and heat was too much for our much experienced dogs to continue after only one mile.

Lovely trail that weaves through the valley and along the river bed. Beautiful view of the hills. Wide trail, great for trail running. Bugs are a little bad along the river bed.

Nice, easy, fun trail with great views. Short and sweet.

Intense, never made it to the falls. Lots of bouldering!

SO MANY FLIES that I couldn't enjoy the hike. Decent climb. Well marked. At about 1.25 miles the trail turned behind the mountain and it was very hot and dry with no breeze. I consider myself pretty outdoorsy, but I must have been bitten 50 times by the flys. It was enough to make us turn around two miles in.
