First time hiking in the Upper Ojai Valley. I asked a local if Sisar Road is in Santa Paula or Ojai and was told neither. The road is actually the divider between the two. Everybody that lives to the south has a Santa Paula phone number, to the north an Ojai phone number and the little town itself is called Summit. I got a late start and had a bit of trouble parking my car but after that it was a fun 12 mile out and back. I didn’t see a soul for the first 10 miles.

In the other direction, the fantastic Topatopa Bluff.

Climbing closer to the bluff.
Photo 1 – If you take this road to the right it will lead to a trail that takes you out on top of Topatopa Bluff. I was thinking about it but had to consider it would add another three miles total on to the hike. By the time I reached the top it was completely overcast and I wouldn’t be able to see anything anyway. I took this as a sign and started back. Photo 4 – Super shiny green plant. Almost looks like a green apple. Photo 5 – The junction where the trail meets the fire road.
Playing around with the photo stitch feature on my camera on the way home – steep Sisar Road
Goodbye Topatopa Bluff
