Time is estimated since I started at the beach and forgot to check the time when I got to the trail head. After HAB up a lot of Tunnel trail going up, I wish I would have gone down that side. But the Jesusita side was no let down. Tunnel would have been more technical. At Inspiration Point, I asked a hiker for directions. He pointed me to a small going down the face of Inspiration point. Having never been there, and verifying the trail on his GPS, I took it. Big mistake as the trail quickly disappeared after a very steep, rocky, bush-wacking descent.
Climbing Jesusita at the 1st half involved a lot of hike-abike. Foothill Rd. was closed for construction. Detour added 0.7 mi. Trail directions were the Best.
On the recommendation of others, I rode this route backward (counterclockwise). I think it is better that way. This is a very technical ride, more for Joplin junkies. Lot’s of hike-a-bike stream crossings. Easy to find the route without GPS. Not worth a trip up, it's almost half asphalt, but a good one if you’re already in Santa Barbara
Great ride with a Local rider,Thanks
Nice ride on the local trails. To bad I don't live here anymore...
