Great trail and view on top! pretty steep going up Brandy's West Creek Trail, but worth the beauty.

Hidden Gem! Spectacular scenery, a variety of habitats, well maintained trails, a flowing creek and short distance to a beautiful beach!

First to Review

The preserve is open to the public via reservation during limited weekends as detailed on the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County web page. Trails circle the canyon and climb up to ridges on the east and west and are well maintained. The creek generally has water, especially in the upper sections.
