Socal - Ventura County - Ojai NickNames: #OrtegaTrail ortega hill
Leaving Ojai and heading north on Hwy 33, approximately 1 1/2 miles past Wheeler Gorge Camp Ground, on the lefthand side of the road. As you pass the camp ground you will be heading up a straight-a-way, next will be a big left hand curve, then a right hand curve, another left, and as you enter the next righthand curve there is a small turnout on the right. The trailhead is on the other side over the road. There is no trailhead sign, but its the only trail there. This trail is for the expert rider looking for a technical uphill challenge. Its steep, rocky, a few hick-a-bikes, and a killer decent. Its about 10 miles to the ridge top where it runs into Cherry Creek and can be riden down to Hwy 33.
