What to do when you don't have time to get away? Load the Jeep with a friend and get out of the house early..........We headed out of Ojai on the Maricopa Highway, Route 166.
The plan was to get to a dirt road, turn left, get dirty and then go hiking. We did all of that but the dirt road due to fire closures.
Since we found a closed gate we kept heading up the highway and finally found a right hand turn or two that lead us here. Look up Camp Scheideck on the Google, it has quite a history!
We stopped a couple of different places for hiking. All were beautiful, hot and dry.
