    Mah Jongg 

    Mah Jongg is a game of both skill and luck that originated in China many centuries ago and was brought to the West in the 1920's.   The excitement of Mah Jongg lies in the decisions that you will constantly have to make. 

    Come play!  All you need is the 2019 American Mah Jongg Card and a basic knowledge of the game, and you’ll be ready to play!  Invite your Mah Jongg playing friends to come, too!

    If you already know the game and want to meet new players, we invite you to drop in and join us!

    You can email us with any questions if you need more information, at: mahjongg@sbnewcomers.org

    High Sierra Grill collects $5/player at the time of play to help cover the cost of the Mah Jonggers utilizing the space.  Plan on staying after to celebrate your Mah Jongg wins at the High Sierra Grill happy hour afterward.

    • Rattlesnake Trailhead

    All our hikes may be changed due to weather, roads, construction, etc.  Check here before you leave or subscribe to our email list below.

    Bring plenty of water

    Rattlesnake Canyon Loop –  8:30am.  This will be a variation of the Rattlesnake trail that goes a little further and offers some great views.  Of course, those who would just like to follow the shady old trail along the creek to the far end of a meadow and back can do that instead. 

    This loop starts up the canyon but we turn left onto an unmarked trail toward what we've called "The Maze" in a previous hike.  But, instead of going to the Maze, we turn left (downhill) on the Edison Catway.  After 5 to 10 minutes, we take a  short unmarked connector to the Tunnel Trail and climb up the Tunnel Trail to the shoulder.  We then hike across the Connector to the big tree by the meadow and hike back down our standard return route on the Rattlesnake trail.

    Hiking Distance:  6.5 miles with a total elevation gain of 2100’ for the loop; 3.5 miles with 1000' of elevation gain for the familiar up and back. 

    Hiking times: 2 to 3 hours for the up and back (go at your pace). 3.5 to 4+ hours for the loop;

    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.

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.)

These rides are 'No Drop', so no riders will be left behind. Whether you are a beginning rider or a Tour de France champion come out and join us as there will usually be something for everyone. Let us know you are riding by clicking the link below.

    • 3010 Roblar Ave Santa Ynez

    We will start at Roblar Winery (3010 Roblar Ave Santa Ynez,) in the heart of Santa Barbara wine Country, just off Highway 154 (San Marcos Pass Rd).  The route follows Roblar Avenue out to Baseline Rd to Happy Canyon Road (which is appropriately named).   We will pass Bridlewood Estates and East Valley Vineyards as we meander through a pastoral oak fill canyon with horse and cattle ranches … you’ll notice signs that say “Slow Horses” or ‘Slow Please (Cows and Calves on Road)”.  We will turn around and return along Happy Canyon Road coming back on Baseline Rd, cross over 154 to Refuguo Rd and head toward Los Olivos.  The Roblar Winery is at the intersection of Refuguo Rd and Roblar Rd.   After the ride, we will meet up at Roblar Winery for some woodoven pizza, charcuterie plates, and possibly a wine flight of their reserve wines.  

    Most of the ride is along rolling hills, and is relatively flat or a slight grade gradually working to a moderate to difficult grade as you continue up Happy Canyon Road.   It is very easy to adjust this ride for your level of riding and disposition of the day.

    All options start at 9:30 .  Let’s meet at 9:15 at Roblar Winery, please allow 45 Minutes drive from SB

    Yes, I plan to ride

    Option 1: Turn around before Happy Canyon Rd becomes too steep. Wait for the group to return or head back (the option is yours). 15-20 Miles Check out the Ride Map

    Option 2:  Continue up Happy Canyon Rd to the Yellow “ fire hazard warning sign” then turn around and head back to Roblar Winery.  25 Miles Check out the Ride Map

     No Hike if Raining. Bring plenty of water.

     Image result for Picture of Knapp's Castle

    This is a Friday 8:30am meetup – no need to register.

    SNYDER TRAIL TO KNAPP’S CASTLE – 8:30am.  This a backcountry hike off of Paradise Road.  Knapp’s Castle is the ruins of a sandstone hilltop lodge built by the found of Union Carbide around 1920.  Located just below Camino Cielo road, it burned in the 1940s and was never rebuilt.  The ruins offer great views of the Santa Ynez Valley and San Rafael Mountains.

    The Snyder Trail climbs from Paradise Road up the ridge alongside Lewis Canyon.  The hike utilizes service roads and trails as it climbs through forests and grassy slopes on its way up to Knapp’s Castle.  Some recent building activity has altered the castle, but it remains a popular hike with increasingly good views as one gets higher and higher on the trail. 
    At the top, we will spend some time exploring the building and enjoying the views.

    Here is a map of the trail.

    Elevation gain ~2000’

    Distance ~6.6 miles

    Google map link for the trailhead  (20 min when you get on 154)

    DIRECTIONS: From Highway 101 in Santa Barbara, take the State Street/Highway 154 exit.  Turn right onto Highway 154 and drive approximately 10 miles to Paradise Road on the right.  Turn right and continue 4.2 miles to the trailhead, which is a turnout on the right side of the road near a gate.  If that area fills up, there is parking in and around the Ranger Station about 0.25 miles further down the road.  Avoid parking in campgrounds or other areas that have facilities unless you are willing to pay the $10 day use fee that is collected in those areas.

    Hike Guide: Dave Ellenberger

    Hope to see you there!

    Saturday, May 11, 2019

    Where

    Coal Oil Point Reserve

    (Isla Vista)

    Qu

    Coal Oil Point is on preserve land in UCSB's west campus area (west of Isla Vista). It is a popular place to whale watch, watch the sunset, and is beloved by UCSB students and surfers. It is also home to a critical protected Snowy Plover habitat area. This is a relaxing mostly flat 3 mile walk (with several options for longer walks) along ocean bluffs and the beach. The walk will also include a bit of the Devereux Slough area for those who like to do bird watching.

    The walk begins along the bluffs above the ocean with an option to walk on the beach below to explore the tidal pools. Our walk is planned for a low tide morning so the tidal pools should be exposed and the beach walking surface should be good. At that point we will come to Coal Oil Point and then down onto "Sands Beach" where the protected Snowy Plover habitat is located (and also where those who walk the beach by the tidal pools can meet up with us). You can often see flocks of Snowy Plovers and many young Plovers at this time of year. We will continue on Sands Beach and after a bit of beach walking, we will turn north off the beach into the beginning of the Devereux Slough area which is a prime bird watching area. The Slough is a seasonally flooded tidal lagoon. At this point, we will have several choices: 1. return to the beach and then walk a bit further west for a longer beach walk, 2. explore the Slough further, or 3. simply head back. 

    Some recommendations: The beach in this area is known to be oily/tarry so we suggest that you take this into account when choosing footwear for the beach part of the walk and possibly bring a change of shoes for afterward. While dogs are allowed, in the Plover habitat area west of Coal Oil Point, dogs are discouraged (and off leash dogs are prohibited). There is one portable toilet near Coal Oil Point.

    After the walk, we'll plan to meet up at Zizzo's Coffee at 370 Storke Road (on east side of Storke a quarter mile before Home Depot as you head north).

    No need to register. Just show up. Downpour cancels, but we’ll proceed in light rain.

    Directions: 101 North to Glen Annie Rd. / Storke Rd. exit in Goleta. Turn left on Storke, drive 1.3 miles to El Colegio Rd. Turn left and drive 0.2 miles to Camino Corto. Turn right and go 0.5 miles to Del Playa Drive. Turn right and park in grove of eucalyptus trees at the end of the street or on one of the neighboring side streets. If you need an address for your GPS, you can use 6894 Del Playa Drive. Parking is adequate but demand is high, so carpooling is always a good option.

    This week's ride has three options and takes us along the coast to Ventura and then inland along a very scenic bike path to Ojai. There are three starting points (Rincon Beach Parking Lot at Bates Road, Main Street Parking Lot in Ventura or Casitas Vista Rd off Hwy 33) Depending on how many miles you are interested in riding you can go a little as 19 miles or as many as 58 miles. This is a very scenic ride. It’s a very easy, continual grade uphill to Ojai, about 3% and in some places 5%.  Not hard at all. Coming back is all downhill!  

    Bates Rd. Parking Lot: For those that are ambitious and want a longer ride (58 miles round trip), we will begin at the parking lot off Bates Road at 8:00AM and will meet up with the main group in Ventura. Check out the Ride Map! 

    Main Street Ventura: A 33 mile round trip ride, starts in Ventura. The bike path begins at Rex Street. If you are starting here drive south on 101 and exit at the Main St, Ventura exit. Park in the parking lot to the right after the bridge over the creek, and just before the HWY 33 overpass. If there is no room, go back over the bridge and park on the side of the road. We’ll meet in the parking lot just before the overpass at 9:00AM. The riders starting at Bates Road will take about an hour to get to this point, so please don’t start w/o the group. Check out the Ride Map!

    Casitas Vista Road: A short 21 mile round trip ride which starts at the Casitas Vista exit off Highway 33, heading to Ojai. To start here take 101 South to 33 North towards Ojai. Exit where the highway is ending at Casitas Vista Road (CVR). Turn right upon exiting on CVR, back alongside the highway on CVR and turn right under the Freeway and park under the overpass. There are restrooms close by, in Foster Park. The riders that start in Ventura will be at CVR by 9:30AM. and we can head off to Ojai as a group.  If we’re a few minutes late, please wait for us. Check out the Ride Map!

    From SB, plan on 30 minutes to parking in Ventura and 45 minutes to parking at CVR.

    This week's ride varies from our normal routine and was designed to give those riders that were hoping to ride in the Santa Barbara Century an opportunity to check off '100 mile ride' from their bucket list. This ride is not a race but please note it is also not recommended for beginners, or those that have not been training for this longer distance! 

    The ride will begin at the Shoreline parking lot and proceed east to Ventura. From Ventura we head back west with our goal being Sandpiper Golf Course. From our Sandpiper checkpoint we head back to Santa Barbara and our starting point. To help with rider safety we are recommending five checkpoints/rest stops. These rest stops will have light snacks and water. The recommended rest stops are:

    1. Rincon/Bates Road

    2. Ventura

    3. Rincon/Bates Road

    Each winery offers a selection of different varietals but all work to produce wines of elegance and balance while representing a sense of place.
