“A great run in upper Ojai, follows Sisar Canyon Road, then cuts off to Red Reef Trail to the bluffs.”— Daniel Birdwell
Stay right on the fire road and then you'll see a trail marker again on the right leading to the summit. This is the Topa Topa Bluff Trail. Stick to the trail for an easier journey, or else you'll be scrambling up a loose scree slope. Then enjoy the summit!
This is a tough route, so plan accordingly. I'd recommend 2-3 liters of water, and if going in summer leave before dawn. Summer is very buggy so bring repellent. It's a grueling trip, but well worth it in terms of training, and the views are incredible, especially if the clouds are blowing over the ridge.
