“THE place to take your friend, spouse, partner or mother for their first ride.”— Kevin Fox
This area is very popular among families and dog walkers from all around the Santa Barbara area. It is a great place to introduce someone to the sport of mountain biking.
None of the trails have separate names, so it's all just one big Elwood Mesa trail.
There are numerous access points but the most common is at the parking area off Hollister. This lot can get full on the weekends with overflow at the elementary school across the street.
