Arroyo Burro Trail from Cater Filtration Plant
No hike if raining. Bring plenty of water.
This is a Friday 8:30am meetup--no need to register.
The Arroyo Burro Trail is an historic trail. In the days before automobile travel, trails the only way over the impenetrable mountain barrier between the coast and the interior. Arroyo Burro supplied a route for miners and other trade.
We will hike about 4 miles of the Arroyo Burro Trail with an 1100 ft elevation. The trail starts at the Cater Filtration Plant and follows the first part of the Jesusita Trail. It then winds up 1/2 mile of paved road before going by some horse stables and a few beautiful homes, then climbs by some lovely views of the Goleta coastline. The trail goes all the way up to the Cielo Road for those who are interested and ambitious! The hike is moderate to strenuous.
DIRECTIONS: Exit 101 at Las Positas and turn toward the mountains. Crossing State St., Las Positas becomes San Roque. Continue on San Roque past 192. (You can also get to San Roque via 192.) Go 1/2 mile past 192 and park at the Cater Water Filtration Plant, (the trail head for Jesusita).
Hike Leader: Steve Clayton
