Sisar Canyon Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"This strenuous but easily navigated loop (also extremely popular with mountain bikers) climbs nearly 10 miles along Sisar Canyon Road to the Topatopa/ Nordhoff Ridge service road (an ascent with an elevation gain of nearly 3,500 feet). It then climbs eastward before dropping back into Sisar Canyon proper along the lower stretch"

"Sisar Canyon begins in the Upper Ojai Valley, halfway between Ojai and Santa Paula. The Sisar Canyon Trail follows Sisar Creek through a canopy of oak and sycamore trees up this beautiful canyon. The hike involves several stream crossings and a scenic overlook with views across the Ojai Valley to Sulphur Mountain."

Took Boy Scout Troop up Sisar Canyon to White Ledge campsite. The canyon is one of my favorite repeat hikes with both shade and active creek for cooling off. White Ledge is a great destination and offers running water from the site's springs. Up Sisar Canyon to White Ledge camp and then across and down Horn Canyon to The Pines camp makes a great 2-nite backpack experience.
