Atascadero Creek Trail (Obern Trail) Description

Starting at Goleta Beach State Park, the Atascadero Creek Bike Path travels east toward Santa Barbara's center, following a flood-control channel. The paved path (a.k.a. Obern Trail) is a popular commuter and recreation trail. Small wildlife and birds hang out in the native riparian habitat along the creek. The trail intersects the Maria Ignacio Creek Trail near Patterson Avenue.

Parking and Trail Access

You can access the trail anywhere it crosses a road. Parking is at Goleta Beach State Park in Goleta. Take Moffett Place to Sandspit Road and park just before the bridge crossing the channel. From Ward Memorial Blvd. heading toward Santa Barbara, exit at Sandspit Road. From the boulevard heading toward Goleta, take the Moffett Place Exit and turn left on Sandspit Road. Park just before crossing the bridge (don't go over the channel).
