Good vertical hike with nice views and a relaxing downhill finish.

From hwy 150 in Ojai, go North on Signal St to the National Park sign. You can park on Signal (I prefer this) or you can turn left at the sign and park in the Park parking lot.

West Falls Matilija (4/27/13)

Ojai, CA, California, United States
Hiking | 4.6 miles (8.5 miles away)
Matilija Creek seems to have water in it, no matter how sparse the rain year.  The 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons have been especially bad, yet there is an abundance of water and many places to swim or just cool your feet.Due to my cartilage-free knees, I didn't feel up to making the 9.2-mile roundtrip hike required to get to the West Falls and back.  The first 2.2 miles of the hike is...

We had some rain, heavy at times, but definitely workable.  This trail is mostly gravelly shale type stuff and doesn't clump up too much on your shoes. a poncho and wicking socks made it bearable.

Hiking | 0.6 miles (3.4 miles away)
Cozy Dell is a nice mid-moderate level hike with lots of shade and places to pull off the trail and rest.  You get rewarded at the top with a sweeping view of the Ojai valley and up the 33 mountain highway.  There is even a ridge that you can see both Casitas and Matilija Lakes.

Rose Valley Falls

Howell Place, California, United States
Hiking | 7.8 miles (6.7 miles away)
Starting from Rose Valley Campground, we started up the fire road at the gate. This is the Nordhoff Ridge access road. When you meet Nordhoff Ridge Road (mile 2), turn East.
