Description

Upper McMenemy begins at an intersection with Hot Springs Trail, and has a challenging singletrack climb up to a saddle point. From there, it descends around tight switchbacks without much visibility. Eventually, the trail flattens out and traverses before a more gentle climb up to McMenemy Bench, and the intersection with Girard Trail and Lower McMenemy.

The difficulty of the first part of the trail, without a major payoff, mean this trail is much less popular than doing a loop on Hot Springs, Edison Catway, and the Girard/McMenemy DH. As with all trails in this area, use a bike bell, and look out for hikers, dogs, and horses. This trail is managed by the Montecito Trails Foundation.
