Explore the Coast

Santa Barbara is situated along the California Coastal Trail - a network of trails along California’s coast intended to provide use and enjoyment for walkers, bikers, equestrian riders, and wheelchair users, as well as connect coastal communities. Currently, 60 percent of the trail is complete, covering over 700 miles of California’s coastline. Within Santa Barbara, the trail includes over six miles of paved multi-use paths adjacent to some of Santa Barbara’s most popular beaches, dirt trails through open space parks, and amazing vistas of the Santa Barbara Channel and offshore islands. Users will experience the coastal breeze and enjoy sounds of the waves, while also noticing the bustling and thriving community nearly 90,000 people call home.

Download our free audio tour files and explore the coast like never before. They are provided in MP3 format and are compatible with most devices. The printable Santa Barbara Coastal Trail Map directs you to 11 stops as you listen to the stories that helped transform Santa Barbara's coast. Watch this video to learn more. 

Maps, podcasts and video were funded in part by the California State Coastal Conservancy through the "Explore the Coast" grant program.
