Planning a hike?

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department suggests that you fill out a hiking plan before you go hiking.




The Upper Ojai Search and Rescue team has a a motorcycle/quad specialty team, whose members are trained and certified operators of quads and motorcycles. We use these to access areas which are more quickly and safely access with smaller vehicles. We are in the process of acquiring a six wheeled vehicle like a John Deere mule. The quads are mostly purchased with money from our fundraiser. We are in the process of purchasing two motorcycles, so we don't have to relay on personal vehicles for rescues. If you are interested in helping raise funds or donating a motorcycle please contact us on our contact page. Thank you for your support and enjoy the photos of our team below.
