Hobson Heights is one of the prominent hillside neighborhoods that was originally built by the local doctors, lawyers and upper class of the 1920’s. Skyline Estates backs up to the beautiful hiking trails at Arroyo Verde park. Ondulando is one of the largest hillside neighborhoods that has a mixture of 1950’s original homes to newly built estates. Clearpoint is the Easternmost Ventura hillside community that is known for wide streets, sunny weather and hiking next door at Harmon Canyon.
