Walk Santa Barbara
Mar./Apr. 2008 California Country magazine
By Kate Campbell
Santa Barbara County is the perfect place to take a hike. A stroll through the urban landscape offers a glimpse of history, eye-popping fashions and delicious urban eats, as well as coastal vistas. But, it’s inland, in the vast open beauty of the Santa Ynez Valley and the rugged Los Padres National Forest, that the role of farming and ranching comes into focus. Walk Santa Barbara, a hiking guide from Olympus Press, $14.95 in softcover, is written by Cheri Rae and John McKinney. Order online at www.thetrailmaster.com.
