This is a great long hike. Especially nice that dogs can be off leash. Winds through nice forest and cool scenery before making it to the top of inspiration point. Parking access is definitely easier than the inspiration point hike.

Very convenient place to hike if you’re visiting Santa Barbara and live in the area but don’t want to venture up to San Rafael Wildnerness or Lake Cachuma.

Nice friendly trail and a good steady moderate grade. I’d do it again, in fact, we did it yesterday.

Lovely hike with varied terrain to Inspiration Point which lives up to it’s name. We saw 4 Channel Islands. Good signage at junctions to avoid wrong turns. If you drive a sedan to the filtration plant lot, be sure to park on the right side. The left side has a high curb and will scrape the bottom of your car. SUV’s do great.

Short hike with beautiful views!!! Highly recommended you can also do trail run or bike

Great view! Took us about 2hrs round trip. Going up was a tad difficult if you're an average hiker, but great workout!

It was a brutal, technical climb. Large rocks that you would get caught up on and loose your momentum. Super sick downhill on the way back. Watch out for the slippery, leafy edges on the 30-50 ft cliffs on the side of the trail. Bring lots of food and water and Gatorades because you will lose all your electrolytes on the climb. Amazing views at the top! Thanks to those people who gave me crackers and marshmallows. You saved my butt. Wouldn't have made it without you.

great trail that leads up the back side to inspiration point. some mt bikers

always a great go to when I want to get a quick trail run or hike with the pup. beware of brushing up on poison oak on the sides of the trail.
