Free Online Presentation with Q&A

In the next few years Santa Barbara County will be completing a trails master plan that could call for new trail access. Currently, the County is inventorying current trail access and analyzing new potential routes. This talk will provide an in-depth look at what we have, where new trails might be added and how this might occur.
