Join former California State Parks ranger and Gaviota Coast Conservancy charter member Mike Lunsford as shares some of his favorite hikes along the coast, ranging from Gaviota State Park to Goleta, as well as how to find the different coastal access spot along Highway 101.

Mike served as a park ranger on the Gaviota Coast for more than 20 years and helped build the network of trails within Gaviota State Park. He has served on the board of the Santa Barbara Trails Council and is the past president of the Gaviota Coast Conservancy, which works to preserve this unique stretch of coastline where the mountains meet the sea.
