Twenty Hikes In 2020!

Most of us begin the year by setting new goals and New Year's resolutions. The promises we make to ourselves at the beginning of the year are not always easy to maintain. Perhaps a wise idea would be to set a smaller goals that are easily achieved to last the whole year.

We are beginning a group challenge here at EK&A and the goal is to complete 20 hikes this year. They can be any of your choice; short distance or difficult endurance hikes- whatever suits your mood. The goal is to get outside and explore the beauty of Santa Barbara! For inspiration, here is a list of 20 various hiking trails in the area that we are excited about. If you have tried any of these or are looking to pair up with a hiking partner, feel free to reach out! Happy hiking!
