From the 101 freeway exit Las Positas Rd near downtown Santa Barbara. Turn toward the mountains. Drive on Las Positas Rd past State Street at which point it becomes San Roque Rd. Continue up San Roque Rd and park at the William B. Cater Filtration Plant. The filtration plant is 1.94 miles from the freeway.

Love this hike, tons of shade, near a nice creek, passes by a stable with some friendly horses in it, variety in terrain and views, only moderately difficult. It has plenty of parking at the trail head, and dogs are allowed to hike off-leash. It ends at the Inspiration Point overlook.
