“Beautiful view of the Ojai Valley”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Meditation Mount is a beautiful place to visit to get an amazing view of The Ojai Valley and to have a nice, quiet get away. People also visit this serene place for meditation and gatherings in the temple located there. There is a walking path that takes you through a native plant garden. There are places you can sit along the way to rest or to meditate.
Go in the day time for the scenery. Visit Meditation Mount during a full moon.
There are people who reside on Meditation Mount so keep in mind to respect their privacy.

“A bit of peace in a hectic world”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Drove up here just before sunset on a Sunday evening. My husband and I have a regular meditation practice, however, there were lots of folks around and neither of us felt comfortable meditating by the lookout point and we were also a bit short of time. The grounds and views are stunning. We saw a rabbit hopping around and many birds in the area. While the lookout area is the one most folks visit, we enjoyed the path around the property. It was much less traveled and would be great for some walking meditation. Will come back and spend more time here. Really glad we took the time to visit. One of the highlights of our trip to Ojai.
