The car pool will be organized near the entrance to the ranch. It is important that you arrive promptly (even early) at 7:45 am as we will not delay our entry to the ranch.

  • Exit Hwy 101 at Gaviota State Park (20 miles North of Santa Barbara).
  • As you approach the park entrance, keep on the road that forks right (Hollister Ranch Road) which goes uphill.
  • Just beyond the top of that hill is a parking area on the right where car pooling will be organized.
  • We must car pool as we are limited to 5 vehicles.

Note: there will no longer be organized car pools from Santa Barbara, but feel free to buddy up with someone you know to save gas.
