Are you referring to the trail in Santa Barbara? Big Caliente and Little Caliente Spring trail?

Jeez, that's right in my backyard and I didn't know it! Sure you can hike those trails anytime. I don't know if you can drive those roads all the time. I'd call the Forest service office in Los Padres Nat'l. Forest.

I drove it last June and it was fine. However not sure if the fires got back there and did damage. We got to the trail by going through Montecito. It takes a good 2 hours to get all the back to the springs. there are two sets of hot springs. I like the further one since it is more desolate. There are several primitive campgrounds back there and I doubt you will have company.

You have to come out the same way you go in. It is easily passable in two wheel drive. You get to it off the East Camino Cielo Road. Have fun.

Jeffrey-there are several good trails back there. I have taken a few of them along the ridge (the Camino Cielo Road) to Refugio Road. THen take Refugio over the pass into Santa Ynez or down to the beach at Refugio State Beach.

Sounds great. Do you know anything about the fishing along that stretch? Can you get to the river easily ?

When I was there in June we saw two rivers/streams that the trail actually crosses. One was about two feet deep, the other was probably two to three feet deep.

There is also a reservoir up there that we did not go to. I looked on a fishing site but there was no info.

Good luck and report back.

Have fun.
