McMenemy/Saddlerock/Girard Loop

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

Get on US 101 going southbound by taking Laguna St. to Mission St. (toward the ocean).

Turn right on Mission St.

Follow Mission St. to the freeway and take US 101 south.

Take the San Ysidro exit. Turn left.

At East Valley Rd. (there is a shopping center), turn right.

Pay close attention as you drive, looking for Park Lane, which is not well marked. There's a tree in the way. You will turn left on Park Lane. It's just after you make a sharp left, then a sharp right in the road.

Turn left again at East Mountain Drive.

Park at the end of the road. The trailhead is at the end of the road and is marked by a sign.

(About 20 minute drive)
