Devil’s Playground, Santa Ynez Mountains

The tunnel-like passage here wraps around to the left and is passable from one end to the other.

The Devil’s Playground sandstone formation as seen from Goleta. It is the large rocky patch toward the top of the mountain.

    Hey Jack Daddy, cool shots. I like the portrait against the rock. Great shot, good eye!! Most people would miss that.

    Love the photos of the small crawl spaces. I had to take a double take, I didn’t know Goleta had such a pretty turrain. Looking forward to seeing more of your trips.

    This is the first time I heard the name Devil’s Playground used for this boulder field just south of West Camino Cielo above Goleta. We’ve always known it as just The Playground after Raymond Ford’s appellation from the 1970’s. There’s better places for the devil to hang out around Santa Barbara 😉

    “Playgrounds”, devil need not apply…maybe some creepy crawlers on full moons but that’s all…

      We have, among my circle of family and friends, for decades, always known it as Devil’s Playground.

      Some people know Arroyo Burro Beach as Hendry’s while still others like my friends and myself call it The Pit.
