Started the trail in Ventura and rode it up to Ojai, slowly ;-), had a snack & coffee and rolled it back down! Absolutely beautiful, away from the road, safe ride, and lots of nature...just what I needed.

I took the 16 bus to Ojai and rod the trail downhill back to Ventura. I'm not in great shape and the uphill journey to Ojai was some thing I didn't feel I could do. Beautiful ride most of the way down, through parkland and...More

The trail can start in Ventura or Ojai. My suggestion is to take the bus (#16 bus) to downtown Ojai and ride back to Ventura as it is mostly down hill going to Ventura. Be careful as you can meet critters on the trail. I...More

This has to be one of the best community services of all time: a great, long bike path from Ventura to Ojai. You don't have to do it all; there are several places you could start and stop. But go early in the day to...More

This is a great bike ride. It's separate from Hwy.33 thus it's very safe. It is also shaded for the most part and hence comfortable. There's a slight incline going, but so gradual you're hardly aware of it on the ride up. What is delightful...More
