I love my days of short hikes for so many reasons. Today I completed six in the Santa Barbara area, totaling out at about nine miles. I hiked in order: 1) Lookout Park 2) Coffin Family Trail 3) Ennisbrook Trail 4) Shoreline Park 5) Douglas Family Preserve 6) Elings Park
This trail has been on my list for a long time. I had been dissuaded by descriptions of narrow stretches with scary drop-offs. I had hiked right near here, up to San Gabriel and Josephine Peaks, and finally I gave Strawberry Peak a go.
