La Purisma Mission State Park

You and your pup can step back in time over 200 years by visiting La Purisima Mission State Park. Enjoy period demonstrations throughout the year as well as the 5-acre garden and nearly 25 acres of hiking trails. The surface of the trails varies from pavement, sand, and dirt. Keep your dog leashed during your visit and make sure to clean up after her. You will also want to protect Fido from ticks, which are sometimes present. Beware that if you are leaving the trail you should watch for poison oak. Visit Website

    True to its promotion

    This mission looks and feels like it could be running just like it did two hundred years ago. the buildings have been very well restored, the docents are kind and very enthusiastic to show how mission life was. The trails are well marked and maintained well. Ground squirrel holes are abundant, so just be attentive. we had a good time and the puppies got a good work out.

    Beautiful Walk

    Had a great walk through here on a beautiful day. The signs warn you of rattlesnakes, so keep your pet on a short leash and walk slowly through the area. We took an uphill hike to the large cross at the top, then back through where we saw the horses riding. We came back down to the spring house, then to the actual Mission. Pets are not allowed in buildings, but are allowed on the trails. Trail was very narrow and all sand, so your legs get a pretty good workout. Take plenty of water for you and Fido since it is in such a dry, mainly unshaded area. Parking fee: $6; Map fee: $1.

    We take our dogs walking around the mission as often as possible. People are very friendly walking around the lower track. This is the best place in Lompoc to walk the dogs great views,peace of mind and wild life. Great coffee shop on South H street.
