Planning a Trip to the Spectacular Channel Islands National Park

Just a short hop from densely populated Southern California is the Channel Islands National Park, a group of five islands in the Pacific Ocean. Wildlife is a big draw for visitors to the park but these islands also provide an opportunity to get away from it all, enjoy some peace and quiet or get active with water sports or hiking.

Must-Do Hikes in Channel Islands National Park

Each of the five islands offers different hiking experiences, with well-signposted trails on Anacapa to much more challenging hiking through the rugged landscapes of Santa Rosa. Most visitors use Santa Barbara or Oxnard hotels near Channel Islands National Park as a base for their trip and this approach gives the flexibility to visit several different islands for a range of walking experiences.
