This hike gets better every year! Along Refugio road they installed several new bridges. You can enjoy a leisurely walk on the paved road to the trailhead, park at the bottom and hike up or, if you have 4-wheel drive, you can drive up to the top at Camino Cielo. A rushing River with cascades compliment a tree-shaded hike with lovely views of the valley and ocean views from the top.

First to Review

Nice little off-road trail. I just got my first 4x4 and decided to give it a go. Very easy and amazing views. Came in from Santa Ynez and ended up on refugio beach. I have 99 Frontier. Didn’t. Get to use my 4x4 but was still very nice.
