Santa Barbara Mountain Biking Trails

Please take a moment to review the guidelines for proper trail etiquette!

*Please note that difficulty ratings are relative to each other.  What is considered a “moderate” trail back home could be very different from a “moderate” trail in Santa Barbara.


Blue Diamond Camuesa Connector Loop

Very fun back-country loop located off of paradise road near Upper Oso Camp Ground. The singletrack portion is mostly downhill with a few short and steep climbs mixed in. Camuesa is a great short ride if you are looking for a change of scenery from the front country trails.

Blue/Black Diamond San Ysidro Trail

Black Diamond Romero Loop

A shop favorite........moderate to steep 4 mile fire road climb leading to a fun descent down the canyon trail. The trail descent transitions from fast and smooth to moderately technical rock gardens as you get lower. If you are looking for a longer ride you can ride the fire road all the way to the top of the mountain for some spectacular views.

Blue Diamond Knapp’s Castle (Snyder Trail)

This is a very popular local shuttle ride. Starting on fire road at the top, Knapp's Castle turns into fast and fun single track for the rest of the way down. If you are looking for a short, fast, and fun shuttle ride then you will love this trail!

Blue/Black Diamond Jesusita Trail

The local XC/Trail Favorite. 1200 ft of climbing rewards you with one of the best views in town as well as a very fast and fun descent. Throw that little chainring back on your bike and bring a trail bell, this one is worth it!

Blue/Black Diamond Tequepis

Tequepis Trail is a hidden gem! The climb to the top is not for the weak but the decent is so very worth it! There are no major technical hurdles to worry about, just point your front end down and hang on for one fun ride!

Blue/Black Diamond Elings Park

Scenic single-track just minutes from downtown Santa Barbara! Elings Park is great for everyone from children and beginners looking to master basic handling skills to veteran riders who have a limited time to ride and want to enjoy the fantastic view. The park has miles of mellow interconnecting single-track trails that reward you with an amazing view of Santa Barbara at the top!
