HELP! Looking for beautiful hikes near Los Olivos, etc.

Hi Everyone,

We'll be in Los Olivos this Sunday and want to do some hikes before visiting the wineries.

What scenic walks or trails would you recommend for beautiful views?

Thanks!

Just wanted to post back here that we had a gorgeous time in Santa Ynez a few weeks ago. While we didn't get to hike so much, we did go horseback-riding... which was a blast!

And got to visit the beautiful lavender farm in Los Olivos... can't wait to return and see the lavender in full bloom in the summer. Cheers!

You came at a good time, bettyo!

The weather has definitely changed back to winter conditions right now. Glad you enjoyed your visit to the Santa Ynez area.

BTW- I just read where they ticketed 200 people for being on Figueroa Mountain without the Adventure Pass, so be sure to look into that if you decide to come back and do any hiking up there.

Kibblesmom: Thanks for the warning!

Yes, the weather in mid-February could not have been nicer and some of the wildflowers were peeking out...

Capped a perfect day in Santa Ynez with dinner at The Ballard Inn... woo-hoo!
