  • Me and my girlfriend went through here while visiting Ventura. It is still regrowing due to the fire that came through around a year ago. The view is still unbeatable and there's still a good bit of plant life. It's certainly worth the small fee to support what they're doing here. And the small trail supplies an amazing view that's worth it all on its own. Please support this place.
  • A beautiful hike with the best view in town! They have really done an incredible job of rebuilding after the fire, and are obviously still hard at work. Seven dollars seems a small price to pay to help fund such a wonderful part of our city getting back on its feet, but if you visit on Tuesdays, you can visit for free. The gift shop is super cute and has all kinds of fun Ventura-themed books, plants, jewelry, etc.
