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 met a bobcat and he woke up on the wrong side that morning as he... More

It's a beautiful trail depending on the time of the year. I biked up to Ojai and back to ventura. It was with a bit of disappointment for the expectations, I blame it on my expectation. Please carry lights if you're headed in low light of early sunset days. It should be lovely during spring. The biking experience was nice... More

My husband and I rode this bike trail yesterday on a cool winter day towards Ojai. we left from the Ventura RV resort and found the entrance to the trail quite easily. The trail takes you through an industrial part of town to begin with before you find it more rural. There is a park on the left to stop... More

Trail begins in Ventura on the Pacific Ocean, then parallels the Ventura River and an old abandoned railroad line. The trail is also adjacent to an equestrian trail meandering through beautiful old trees, little rural settlements and eventually terminating in the lovely resort town of Ojai. There you can easily find a delightful restaurant to refresh oneself before a return... 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 avoid the heat, because it can get super hot in Ojai. I would not particularly... 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 is that on the way down you barely need to pedal which makes a very... More

This paved bike path is great, and full of beautiful ocean views, and also of the mountains. Such beautiful views. We went with our 10 and 13 year-old boys and it was totally manageable. There is no rush, you can go at your own speed.

This is built on old train tracks so the over 1000 foot climb is barely noticeable but it is there. This is a great beginner ride for those wanting to work up to some real distances. If you get to where this is like nothing to you, you'll be ready for the SB county line ride.

Fun bike run. Ventura to Ojai is uphill, but gradual enough for the casual bike ride. About 1/2 way to Ojai is a nice park to stop and have a bite to eat that you will bring in your bike bags.
