Santa Ynez Outdoors
The Paradise Road entrance to Los Padres National Forest contains a multitude of recreational options for a variety of visitors. Along with an array of mountain biking and hiking trails, and the gateway to the San Rafael and Dick Smith Wilderness areas, visitors will find an abundance of swimming holes along the length of the Santa Ynez River in this section of the forest. The refreshing pools of Red Rock can be the perfect destination on a warm summer afternoon. With dozens of pools of varying depth and size, Red Rock can provide hours of entertainment for swimmers, waders, rock jumpers and tubers. Multitudes of pools line the river for miles, and the water is refreshing and clean. Red Rock is the perfect destination for anyone looking for a refreshing reprieve during the warm summer months in Santa Ynez. And there are often occasions when the beaches of Santa Barbara are socked in with fog while valley conditions are warm and sunny.
