Features Views

From uppermost campsite of Dennison Park, you can see Black Mountain Fire Road across a modest chaparral hike, and over a "No Trespassing" posted barb-wire fence. The road to the peak is wide and steep with great views of Ojai, but the western descent passes through ranch land patrolled by irate resident.

Description

Start at the rear of Dennison Park. There is a short connector trail to Black Mountain Fire Road. The road is visible from the entry gate. Continue up the road and enjoy the wrap-around views until you reach the view plateau. Return when ready.
