Now, there are two ways to get to this hike. The shorter and more straight up hill version has you start at the Tunnel Hill Trailhead (1.5 hour round trip). This starts out easy and then basically takes you right up the mountain. If you start out at the Jesusita Trailhead it’ll take a bit longer to do the 7.7 miles here.
Once you reach the top of Inspiration Point there may not be a better view in all of Santa Barbara. On a perfectly clear day you can see from Ventura all the way up to Gaviota.
