Welcome to Santa Barbara County Hikers!
My name is Curt Cragg, founder of the Santa Barbara County Hikers Meetup Group. I coordinate and lead our weekly Saturday hikes. I also coordinate volunteer trail projects on behalf of the Santa Barbara County Trails Council through our companion volunteer Meetup site http://www.meetup.com/Santa-Barbara-Trail-Volunteers/.
We all benefit from free access to the extensive network of trails throughout our coastal mountains, along the Gaviota coastline, in the Santa Ynez Valley and across the spectacular Santa Barbara back country. The County’s trail system is a community resource that is at its best when it is maintained and regularly put to use.
Although we do not charge to join our Meetup group, each hike we takes reminds us that the community resource we love is also a community responsibility. There are many ways to fulfill that obligation. One way is to join the Santa Barbara County Trails Council: http://sbtrails.org/join/ Your membership supports our recreational hiking program, trail maintenance program, as well as, the planning and construction of new trails in Santa Barbara County for all users. As a new member you will also receive a local hiking trails map pack.
Thanks for joining Santa Barbara County Hikers and now come join us for a hike for run, fitness and the incredible beauty that surrounds us!
