Did You Know?

Lake Cachuma:

Hiking
SELF-GUIDED HIKES
Five trails ranging from a loop to four miles one way can be explored within Cachuma Lake Recreation Area. Within 15 minutes drive or less, you can access multiple hiking trailheads in Los Padres National Forest. Pick up a trail guide at Cachuma Lake.

1. Sweetwater Trail is 2 miles one way between the campgrounds and Bradbury Dam Overlook. Offers good bird watching at either trailhead. Pick up the trail from the campground at Harvey Cove, or from the Overlook at the parking lot.

2. Oak Canyon Nature Trail is mile one way. Access the trailhead at the Cachuma Nature Center or on the road to Cachuma trailer storage

3. Mohawk Loop is mile around the peninsula, passing by a fishing pier. Offers good bird watching. Trailhead can be found at Mohawk Mesa.

4. Mohawk Area Trail extends 1 miles. Informal trails nearby meander through fields and woods. Good bird watching at Jackrabbit Flats. The trailhead is at the creek foot bridge in the Mohawk camping area.

5. Tequepis Trail runs 4 miles one way to the Santa Ynez Mountains ridge line. This trail is not directly accessible from the Recreation Area, but is reachable 1 mile away, off Highway 154. From the parking lot, walk through the camp to the trailhead. As this is Los Padres National Forest land a permit is required for parking.

Did You Know?

Lake Cachuma is a lake located in central Santa Barbara County, California on the Santa Ynez River. It is formed by Bradbury Dam, a 201 foot (61 m) earth-fill dam built by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation in 1953. At capacity it can hold 205,000 acre-feet (253,000,000 m) and has a surface area of 3,100 acres. It is the site of a large campsite[1] administered by the Santa Barbara County Parks[2] department. County Parks offers visitors to the Lake tent, RV, Yurt, and group camping and Fishing, Boating, Hiking, Lake Cruises & Nature Programs.
The University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) rowing (sport) team (otherwise known as "crew") regularly practices (and races) at Lake Cachuma and erected a permanent boathouse there just prior to the 1982-1983 school year.
The city of Solvang, California is approximately 20 miles to the west of Lake Cachuma.

bet if we were extra nice to mr T, he'd be the captain on our three hour cruise...

RENTALS INCLUDE a clean boat, oars or paddle, anchor and rope, gasoline for rental motors and life jackets, which must be worn by each passenger upon entering boat.

after we enter the boat, it's ta-kill-ya, clothes fall off, stereo on, and the tour begins...

has anyone seen the skipper and maryann??? or the professor?

Mr bo,

It would be my pleasure to take the helm of the SS Party Barge. As a Captain with 2600 hours under my belt, I am sure you will all be safe even with a margi-ball on board, after all, it floats.

You got some catchin' up to do. Without a cruise director we've sorta been wandering aimlessly. But we may have some agreement on Cachuma as a destination. How about late Nov. or mid to late Dec.?

There is a lot to do at Lake Cachuma and the surrounding area...
boating, hiking, wine tasting (right girls?), restaurants and of course the Tavern, shopping, bird watching, occupying lounge chairs, overbeveraging, corn tossing etc.

The best part is there are no advance reservations so it's easy for everyone. Show up when you want and no one has to be responsible for money or keeping track of reservations. Whoever gets there first just puts out a few lawn chairs.

Lots of full hookups.

Soooooo....how about a few ideas for dates?
