I realize that other than beach walks, there are mountains! However, I am hoping you can point us to some easy to moderate hikes, maybe 4 miles max but shorter is fine. I have knee issues and use hiking poles, but good footing is important, preferably no stream crossings, and no scrambling. We are in good cardiovascular shape and in our early 60s.
We'll be staying at Bacara. Folks have recommended Inspiration Point and Rattlesnake, what do you think about those?
Years ago we stayed at San Ysidro Ranch and there was a hike there...went up into the hills. We turned around at a bench overlook. I cannot seem to find that one...it was about as hard as I could do then and probably now. (I have looked at santabarbarahikes.com.) Any ideas as to what that trail is and where we can find info?
