This is a route from Rocky Nook Park near the Mission. About half the ride is on pavement but if you're in Santa Barbara without a shuttle option this is a nice loop to do from town. Avoid riding on weekends as the trails get a lot of hiking traffic & always have a bell on your bike when riding any trails in SB!

 One of the best trails I've done on the west coast. Jual from SB fit tours guided me down the "world famous" tunnel trail and we linked up with jesusita. Definitely recommend a guide as line choice is important and the shuttle service SB fit tours provided made the downhill much more enjoyable.

Dry and dusty. Watch for hikers with bad attitudes.
