Travel Directions

From Los Angeles

0r South

Take Highway 101 North to Ventura until one of the last exits which reads: HIGHWAY 33 – OJAI. Take Highway 33 to and through the town of Ojai (you’ll know the town of Ojai when you reach SIGNAL STREET). Continue through town, which has become Highway 150 or Ojai Avenue. Eventually you will come to a fork with an Italian restaurant – Boccalis – on your left. Bear right and the highway will now begin a steep climb – switchback style – up to the Upper Ojai Valley. When you reach Dennison Park (on your right) you are exactly one mile from our entrance. Look for Happy Valley School Rd. (on your left). There is a sign at the entrance to the road that reads: Besant Hill School/Center for the Arts. (Directly across from our road entrance is the BLACK MOUNTAIN RANCH). Make a left onto Happy Valley School Rd., and continue until you see the parking lot on the right. The parking lot will be on your right. Park and walk up the path to the Administration Office.
