We will hike to Swimming Holes and Majestic Water falls. This scenic trail follows the beautiful Matilija Creek. This time of year the temperature can be unpredictable so dress in layers. There are several river crossings with boulder hopping along the way so we categorized this hike as one of our NO WIMP HIKES.

Saturday, November 14th.
We will begin our hike on the north face of Pine Mountain, just north of Ojai. The elevation is 6,400 ft. and it may be chilly at the start. We meander beneath the ancient pines overlooking the Cuyama Bad Lands. Then we find ourselves descending into the oak trees as the view widens out over the valley and canyons below us. Next we take a secret trail back into the pine trees to an abandoned camp site with a spring. Here we will witness the millions of lady bugs clustered on the ferns and trees. A perfect spot to enjoy the moment and take a lunch break. This is a very rare and special place.
Since poaching of lady bugs has become so widespread we ask that you keep the location a Secret. Dress in layers, bring water, sack lunch, sunscreen, hat, camera, all the normal stuff.
