Description

Painted Cave hosts arguably three of the most well-traveled boulders in Santa Barbara. Only minutes from town and literally hanging over the road, ease of access alone makes this a popular "quick hit" destination.

Getting There

From the 101, Take the 154 to a right on Painted Cave Road. You'll practically run into the boulders after about a mile and a half of 1st and 2nd gear meanderings.

From ordering a Tropical Fuzz at the Blenders in Five Points to being shoed up and warming up on the Hallway Traverse, it should only take about 10 minutes.
