We will hike from E Mountain Drive through the recently acquired Hot Springs trail area. After a brief stop for a view from Saddle Rock we will continue to the Peace Rocks mesa for an even more expansive view and then on to the ruins of Montecito’s old Hot Springs resort. We will return via a new and rarely used trail. Not much of a hot spring flows these days so we won’t be doing any bathing in the Hot Springs.
Approx 3 mile RT with a few steep sections (several hundred yards of steep climbing). Bring water and a snack.
If everyone is up for it we can add an optional 1.5 mile hike up to the Cold Spring Trail.
Meet behind B of A on upper State St. at Hope Ave. at 9AM or meet at the Hot Springs trailhead on East Mountain Drive at 9:30
