Ride the Goleta North Loop

Prefer riding off-road?

Try this route to Goleta's Winchester Canyon – you'll enjoy the peaceful off-road trails that take you there; this is a great route for those who want to avoid riding with cars.

From Downtown Santa Barbara it's a comfortable 30-mile round trip. Locals will begin at Goleta Beach Park where there's plenty of parking most mornings. Either way you get here, head to the Maria Ygnacio Trail, a great north-south trail that takes you under Hollister Ave and the 101 Fwy to the North Goleta Route which travels through quiet neighborhoods on your way to Lake Los Carneros and beyond.
