Jesusita is probably the most fun you'll have going down on anything in Santa Barbara (at least in the

opinion of this non-DHer). But be warned: you have to earn that fun. The climb can be pretty taxing,

although you'll need to burn those extra calories to earn the celebratory beers you'll want after flying

down the nearly 1900' you climbed. There isn't much that Jesusita doesn't offer. On the way up you'll

have to deal with some paved road and then a lot of steep, technical singletrack, and on the way down

you'll encounter everything from tricky rock gardens to fast, swoopy switchbacks. This ride will get you

hot, sweaty, and dirty, but who really enjoys good, clean fun anyway? (Please be sure to read the

Disclaimer for Santa Barbara Trails at the bottom of this description!)

There's more to come, so stayed tuned. Those 1900' have me too beat to finish the description, but at

least you have the photos and gps to hold you over.

***Disclaimer for Santa Barbara Trails***

All of the trails in Santa Barbara are multi-use, and are used extensively by hikers, equestrians, and

mountain bikers alike. When controversy arises (and it frequently does in this area), mountain bikers

are the first ones on the chopping block. To ensure that we all get to coexist on the trails, please yield to

all other users and be respectful to everybody that you encounter. Most importantly, use a bike bell! A

bell box with free bells is provided at the trailhead, but these are often empty, so grab one of your own

at a bike shop or craft store. The use of these bells helps to keep mountain bikers on the trails we all use

and love so much!


From US 101:
