Free Nature Hikes
Saturday and Sunday Mornings
NatureTrack will be offering docent led hikes for those wishing to take advantage of the abundant natural beauty of the Santa Ynez Valley for a more immersive outdoor experience. Leaving from the nearby Midland School parking lot, hikers can enjoy walking the entire Lovers Loop trail or a portion of it to view the beautiful landscape and possible wildflower show. As described by the Santa Barbara Trails Council: “Lover’s Loop” is a combination of meandering trail through grass-and-oak-covered hillsides, awesome ridges and grass meadows - all with views of the impressive slopes of Grass Mountain.
Starting point: 6.9 miles from the intersection of Hwy 154 and Figueroa Mtn Rd. to the trailhead parking area, all participants must have good balance and be in good physical condition. Bring water and wear closed-toe shoes.
Must show NTFF pass, punch card, or ticket stub to join in the hike.
Spaces are limited to 15 participants and on a first come / first served basis.
