ENJOY THE OUTDOORS
SEE THE VIEWS
Meher Mount is at the 2,500-foot level atop Sulphur Mountain. It overlooks the beautiful Ojai Valley on the north. To the northeast are the 6,368-foot Topa Topa Bluffs in the Los Padres National Forest.
On the point near Baba’s Tree looking toward the south, visitors see the Santa Paula Heritage Valley and Oxnard Plain. To the west and northwest is the Pacific Ocean with the Channel Islands which are easily seen on a clear day. On foggy days, it feels like a Chinese painting as you look over the low-lying clouds to see the mountain tops and an ocean partially obscured by the mist.
HAVE A PICNIC
During His 1956 visit, Avatar Meher Baba said, "Now, go out and see the view and try to love Baba through nature. This is all due to my love. This whole creation, this nature, all the beauty you see, all came out of me."
In 2010/2011, the Topa Topa Patio (overlooking Topa Topa Mountain) will be constructed to provide an additional picnic area for visitors.
Visitors to Meher Mount are often welcomed by the sounds of birds singing. Pause a moment, and even the casual bird watcher can view the different species that find Meher Mount a welcome home or at least a good place to visit.
The Audubon Society regularly visits Meher Mount for bird watching and does an annual bird count here. Because of the varied habitats, mild climate, and proximity to the ocean, this area is a bird watcher’s delight.
