Hiking Hot Springs Canyon Trail
This moderate level, 3.7 mile Montecito hike is one of my favorites in the area. The scenic, mostly shaded trail is just wonderful. It is so rewarding, because you get to dip in these lovely hot springs pools at the end - so don't forget your bathing suit. It can get crowded here - so I highly recommend going during the week and very early in the morning, if you are able to do so. Parking is also limited, so keep that in mind.
