Arroyo Burro Trail Directions

From the Mission, corner of Laguna and Los Olivos Street in Santa Barbara...

Head up Los Olivos toward the mountains. The road makes a jag and becomes Mission Canyon Rd.

At the stop sign, turn left on Foothill Rd.

Drive 4 tenths of a mile and turn right on San Roque Rd. Pass the W. B. Cater Water Filtration Plant. Park your car where there is a large wooden sign marked "Jesusita Trail" on the left. Trailhead is here. It may be easier to park in a dirt spur on the right.

(About 10 minute drive)
