Created in 1992, the Sespe Wilderness encompasses more than 200,000 acres of wild and protected land within Los Padres National Forest. Perhaps best known for its famous hot springs, within these natural lands you will also find waterfalls, pine-covered mountains, homestead sites, quiet potreros, and miles of trails to explore.

Join local author James Wapotich as he shares images and stories from his hikes through this diverse wilderness area. James has hiked many of the trails in our local backcountry. He is a Volunteer Wilderness Ranger with the Forest Service, and is the author of the Santa Barbara News-Press hiking column, Trail Quest.
