To reach Chumash Painted Cave State Park, Take Highway 154 from Santa Barbara and turn right on Painted Cave Road. The cave is located on the left about two miles up a steep, winding, narrow road. Parking is limited to two or three cars. RVs and trailers should not attempt the road. Access to the cave area after parking is rocky and challenging, but the letterbox is not located at the cave area.

To find the box, from Chumash Painted Cave State Park, drive about a mile back in the direction of Santa Barbara on Painted Cave Road. Just after passing a set of mailboxes that include 2548 and 2550 Painted Cave Road. A bit further down the winding road you come across a flat pull out parking area on the right that will fit about 10 cars. Pull off here. Across the street from where you pulled in, you see a small social trail. Cross the street to that side, but don’t take that trail. But walk down the road a little further on that side, closer to where the road starts to turn in to the U. The box is at the start of that social trail there. The box is on the right at the base of the bush/tree at the start of the trail, under some rocks.

Hike length: 0.1 miles
