Todos Afuera Hike | Rattlesnake Canyon
October 14, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Todos Afuera is a community group that is building community through outdoor recreation, exploring trails in Santa Barbara County, practicing environmental stewardship, protecting of our public open spaces, sharing resources, and having fun doing it!
While the focus is to encourage Latinx participation, everyone is welcome! The group exists to provide more opportunities to get outside that are culturally relevant, remove existing barriers, and increase Latinx participation in conservation.
Hike leader, Graciela Cabello, is a volunteer organizer supported by the Santa Barbara County Trails Council. She does this work because she is passionate about sharing her love of outdoor recreation with her community, and equally passionate about protecting our public lands for generations ahead. Se habla Español.
Meet in the Parking lot of Skofield Park at 9am. 1801 Las Canoas Rd
(You can also type in Skofield Park into your GPS and it will take you there)
The park is located about 3.7 miles in the hills above Santa Barbara. From the eastside (Milpas St.) it takes about 10-15 min to get there. You’ll want to give yourself more time if you are not familiar with the area because the roads are winding and may require more time to look at your GPS. If you can print directions, that is your best option since I’m not sure what service is like for the different carriers.
We will wait a couple minutes for everyone to arrive, go over a few details, and walk to the trailhead from the parking lot together. We should be done hiking before 12n.
Hike is 3.5 miles roundtrip. It is nice and shaded for part of the trail and there is running water in the creek. We’ll hike creekside for about 1.5 miles.
What to bring:
- At least 2 litres of water (that’s 8 cups)
(Please do not come with a small water bottle. It will be warm and the hike is a pretty steady incline, so it’s always better to have more water than to have to turn around because you don’t have enough or risk getting dehydrated.)
- Comfortable shoes (tennis shoes or hiking shoes). No sandals or open toed shoes
- If you have a first aid kit, it’s always a good idea to bring one. Or at least bandaids in case you get a blister.
- If you have a backpack, bring it to carry your water. If you don’t you can always hand carry your water.
- Snacks if you tend to get hungry.
- Tissue in case you need to go to the restroom on the hike or blow your nose. Please note if you do go on the trail, you need to go at least 100 ft away from water. You can also bring a ziplock to carry your used toilet paper. Please do not leave any trash on the trail.
Other recommended items:
- hand sanitizer
- Lip balm with spf
