Hike to Inspiration Point in Rattlesnake Canyon

3.5 Miles Round Trip - 800 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Inspiration Point Trailhead, Santa Barbara - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Get on the up and up to see the finest views of Santa Barbara, and oh--watch out for rattlesnakes.

Hike up the 3.5 mile trail to an unbeatable vista that will leave you smiling despite the chronic uphill that got you there. Inspiration point is in Rattlesnake Canyon State Park, so, naturally, be on the lookout for slithery reptile friends. Be sure to bring sturdy shoes as parts of the trail may have loose footing.
