Description

The More Mesa Loop Trail begins at the dead end of Mockingbird Lane. From the trailhead here, the trail heads straight to the south while passing a few diverging trails along both sides. After running on the trail for 1/2 of a mile you'll reach the bluff's edge above More Mesa Beach. The More Mesa Beach Connector can take you down to the beach down a log staircase at this point. However, to continue along the More Mesa Loop trail you'll follow the bluff-top path to the west (up the coast). Along this stretch of the trail you'll have nice views of the UC Santa Barbara campus and the Channel Islands. Follow the trail for 3/4 of a mile before turning inland at the edge of a series of residential houses.

The trail then continues inland for about 1/4 of a mile before bending to the west. From here, the trail makes its way back to the original trailhead over the course of 1 mile.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.

Flora & Fauna

Black-shouldered kite, marsh hawk, the northern harrier, and short-eared owl are all birds that can be spotted along the trail.
