Chumash Painted Cave

Saves: 101
Check-ins: 21
The paintings in these sandstone boulders have been estimated to date back to the 1600s and earlier but the meaning behind the pictures is still a mystery. Located off of Hwy 154, this little hidden piece of history is well worth the detour. Once you get close to the caves, you will have to find a place off the side of the road to park. The cave itself is easy to find but you won't be able to enter. There is a gate blocking the entrance but you might be able to stick your camera through to take a photo. (Photo by Sophia Martinez)

This was so cool to see!! FYI if you’re trying to find this stop using Apple Maps it takes you to the wrong location! Don’t drive all the way up the hill!
