Directions to the Reserve

Directions to the Sedgwick Reserve, located 35 miles north of Santa Barbara in the community of Santa Ynez.

From Highway 154, turn east on Edison Road (at the 4-way flashing stop sign at the big blue church). Drive 1 mile on Edison and turn right on Roblar. Drive 1.5 miles on Roblar and turn north on Brinkerhoff. The Reserve is at the end of the road (3566 Brinkerhoff). Please drive slowly on Brinkerhoff – neighbors and wildlife appreciate the posted 25 mph speed limit. Follow the signs into the field station from the main gate. The gates are only open during public events. At all other times a code is needed to enter.
