Upper Foothill is a small and secluded climbing area, about a mile and a half from downtown Ojai. Foothill Crag is about ten minutes down the trail.
There are two ways. They both take about 20 minutes so you can't go wrong.
The hike -- From the Pratt trailhead, take Pratt trail and hike for one mile, eventually passing houses and gardens. Soon you will reach Foothill Road, which you follow until you pass a gate and a large water tank, the road now being dirt. The dirt road crosses a dry creek and heads up and right. Take the trail that heads off right. The Hideout is about ten minutes up this trail at the top of the hill. Look for a Ojai Valley Land Conservancy kiosk about halfway.
The hike -- Hike up the dirt road until you reach the large Ojai Valley Land Conservancy kiosk on the left. The kiosk marks the trailhead for Fox Canyon Trail, which will take you uphill for about one mile until you reach a fork in the trail, marked by a sign-post. Go left. Hike for about five more minutes until the trail tops out at the Hideout.

The uppermost part is a section of thin and exposed 5.8 with solid pro below the feet.The climb tops out upon an airy perch with excellent vie...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
