California Central Coast - Inspiration Point in Santa Barbara

Hello ladies! I’m Caroline and I’m an ambassador for GWH Central Coast. I will be hosting this hike to Inspiration Point via Tunnel Trail and Jesusita Trail from Tunnel Road in Santa Barbara. 

Inspiration Point is located in the Santa Ynez Mountains It is 1,800-feet above the Santa Barbara Coast and has panoramic views over the city and Pacific Ocean. 

This is a ladies-only hike. All women are welcome. No one will get left behind. If you are registered member of Girls Who Hike, bring your punch card for signature. One signature, per meetup. I will not be handing out punch cards. 

What to bring: Water: Bring your own water, at least 2 liters, as it can be very hot and sunny on the trail. Snack: We will be taking a snack break. Ten essential: As always, it is a good idea to bring the 10 hiking essentials.
