“Peaceful. Tranquil. Nature & Nurture.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

We rented bikes and cycled to Meditation Mount. This area of Ojai is glorious. There is a little bit of a steep hill, and we had to walk our bikes, but you can see why Ojai is so well known for retreats. If you're in Ojai for the weekend, explore this corner of town.

“Wonderful place to relax and spend some time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

We took a girls' weekend trip to Ojai and were looking for some light hiking to do because 2 of us were pregnant. This ended up being the perfect place. The views were wonderful. The hike was nice and not too strenuous or long. There was also a wonderful garden and koi pond. A small reading room and a tea room to relax in. A great place to observe the quietness and be amongst nature. Best of all, it's free!

“Beautiful Oasis of Serenity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

The drive up to Meditation Mount was great fun, all the twists and turns and an opportunity to remove myself from city life. Once at the top, the views were breathtaking and the quiet immediately soothing. I was the only visitor that morning and felt very spoiled to have the place all too myself.
