Help repair our trails

in the Thomas Fire burn area

Thomas Fire Trail Rebuilding Campaign

The devastation caused by the Thomas Fire will continue to affect the landscape for many years. Sections of many trails long treasured are gone forever. But by banding together community organizations who support outdoor activities on the trails, and working with government agencies on many levels, the work of reclaiming the burn area trails is beginning.


Our mission is to spread awareness of the work being done by and for the City, County, and Federal agencies responsible for managing 125 miles of damaged trails, and raise money for repairs using qualified trail crews.


Los Padres Forest Association, The C.R.E.W., Santa Barbara Mountain Bike Trail Volunteers, and the Santa Barbara County Trails Council have all collaborated to create this campaign. Our work is guided and approved by the U.S. Forest Service, County of Santa Barbara Community Services, and the City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation.


We encourage you to contribute your support, and join in this massive effort to make the trails once again safe for mixed use outdoor activities. Together we can ensure that generations to come have trails to explore and enjoy.


Your involvement is critical to restoring the trails damaged by the Thomas Fire. Thank you in advance for your help.
