Also known as the “Jewel of the Gaviota Coast,” this canyon is full of beauty, wildlife, and a sense of peace. Come to hear about the early history of California told through the old ranch, view sycamore trees, yucca blooms, streams, and steep canyon walls. Don’t miss the beautiful views of the Gaviota coastline and the far off Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary.
