Description Suggest change

Beautiful sand stone boulders over looking the California Central Coast. The main attraction is a bouldering cave that has a 20ft traverse that can be done backwards and forwards. The cave contains many eliminates if you are looking for something more diffucult. Not a huge area, but worth stopping by if you are in the area.

Getting There Suggest change

[Added by Matthew Fienup]

From Santa Barbara, take Hwy-154 North toward Santa Ynez.

At the top of the grade and just before the summit, turn left on West Camino Cielo Road (if you go through the pass and begin descending into the Santa Ynez valley, you've gone too far).

The trailhead for Lizard's Mouth is located 3.8 miles down West Camino Cielo, on the left-hand side (50 yards before the entrance to the Winchester Gun Club).
