Sage Trail Alliance has provided some 2000 hours of work each year to care for the Santa Barbara trails. Founded in 1988, our mission is and has always been to maintain and improve our trails to reduce risk and increase the enjoyment of all users.

Maintain – The design & maintenance of environmentally & socially sustainable trails.
Protect – Provide responsible care for public lands through continued stewardship.

Create – Through coalition building we bring new public trails to the region.
