Points of Interest

1. Nice view of Lake Casitas in the distance

Especially pretty when the lupine are blooming.

2. View of the city of Ojai below

Keep chugging, you'll be down there soon, enjoying a cool drink (well, not really soon).

3. Upper Parking Area

This spot is near the top of Sulfur Mountain. Here you trade in the dirt road for a nice paved road. Park here for an easy (using two cars) ride down the mountain to my starting point near Casitas Springs.

Good place to take a break and grab a bite to eat. You will be tired and hungry.

5. Downtown Ojai Arcade

Another great place to stop and rest, and get something to eat.
