Jope W. on Dry Lakes Ridge
Trail is not marked. Very steep climb to the ridge then a pleasant climb with spectacular views. The trail is very overgrown though making it slow going. Made it to the first dry lake. The trail seemed completely overgrown here so we turned back.
Jope W. on N. Fork Matilija Trail 23W07
Moderate amount of poison oak. Avoidable but barely. Some nice small pools but not deep enough for swimming. The waterfall was a bit of a mystery but found it but using a topo map it's off-trail up a creek bed on the left. At the time the falls were dry. Should be running this year!
Jope W. on Howard Creek Trail
Steady climb, some shade, amazing views.
Jope W. on Kennedy Ridge Trail
Steep trail but rewarding views.
Jope W. on Cozy Dell Trail
Some poison oak but nice short climb for a view of Ojai Valley.
