This protected open space along the bluffs is one of the few undeveloped coastal properties between the western border of Goleta and the Ventura County line. The property overlooks Rincon, a famous surf spot known for its well-formed waves.
The Land Trust is working alongside the City of Carpinteria and the Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs to finalize a set of plans to improve the property, introducing new safety measures, trails, parking, public restrooms and benches.
The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County has been working to restore, manage and preserve open space, wildlife habitat and family farms and ranches since 1985. Today, the Land Trust has helped to preserve over 25,000 acres of natural resources and land, including Arroyo Hondo Preserve, Sedgwick Reserve, Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve, Coronado Butterfly Preserve, Point Sal, Carpinteria Salt Marsh and several ranches along the Gaviota Coast.
