    • Stearns Wharf

    Everyone Welcome... Runners, Run/Walkers, and Walkers!

    We meet every Saturday at 8am to run, jog, or walk together and then go for breakfast!

    The routes we take allow you to go as far or as short a distance as you wish. We typically run out and back (for about an hour or so)... some go 4 miles, others 6 or 7 miles, and some go even farther since they're training for full or half marathons.

    We typically meet at Stearns Wharf by the restrooms near the Dolphin Fountain.  Look for the BRIGHT PINK hat! Park on Anacapa Street and walk to the wharf.  Breakfast afterwards at Lucky Penny, 127 Anacapa St!

    See you there!

    If you are joining SB Striders for the first time, please email us (sbstriders@sbnewcomers.org) so we don't leave you behind if you arrive late.

    We vary the starting locations and routes, so please remember to check the Newcomers calendar, the Santa Barbara Striders Facebook page, and/or Meetup for details.

Then we gather at the picnic tables and visit some more. Sometimes there is food to share.

    No Hike if Raining

    White Mountain + “The Rock Garden”



    No hike if raining, no need to register-just show up!  Bring water and sunscreen.

    This is a short but moderately steep hike.  The 25 minute ascent to the White Mountain peak (elevation: 3804') is rewarded by spectacular views of the “Rock Garden”.  Many trails lead in and among the boulders and pines.  The views are breathtaking, so bring your camera!  We can linger at the top as long as is wanted.  Round trip distance is approx. 1.5 miles, with an elevation change of 500 feet.  There are extensions at the end of this hike for those who want to extend the distance and difficulty of the outing.

    Directions: The trailhead is a parking space at the top of Gibraltar Rd where E Camino Cielo Rd splits to the right and left.  From 192, go north, (to the mountains) at Sheffield Reservoir on Mountain Dr.  Go @1/2 mile to where the street trifurcates, the middle road is Gibraltar Rd.  Go @1/2 miles to a stop sign and turn left on to the continuation of Gibraltar Rd.  Go @7 miles up Gibraltar.  Parking will be at the top and to the left.  Note: Gibraltar takes a while (15 minutes) to drive, so consider this in your planning as the hike is at 8:30am from the top of Gibraltar Rd. 

     Hike leader: Dave Ellenberger.

    Hope to see you there!

    Stevens Park


    Hike along San Roque Creek through a beautiful oak and sycamore shaded park at the bottom of San Roque Canyon. An easy nature trail winds past bedrock mortars that the Chumash Indians wore into the rock while grinding acorns into meal. Stop along the way in an open grassy meadow to take in views of Cathedral Peak. We will plan to take the route that comes out on San Roque and return - a 2-mile round trip, or go up to the picnic area if hikers want a longer stretch with more exercise.

    No need to register.  Just show up.  Downpour cancels (either on the day of or the day or two before the hike because the trail could be unstable), but we’ll go ahead in light rain. Bring water and sunblock.


    Dogs on leash are welcome.


    After the hike, join us for coffee.


    Directions: From Highway 101, exit Las Positas Road. Drive 1.2 miles north to Calle Fresno on the left, shortly after crossing State Street.  (Note that Las Positas Road becomes San Roque Road after crossing State Street.) Turn left on Calle Fresno and travel one block.  Turn right on Canon Drive. Quickly turn right again into the posted park entrance.  Park in the spaces provided.  If they are full, there is also on-street parking.
