We rented e-bikes form Bike Depot in Ventura and had a lovely ride to Ojai. Took a side trip on back roads through orange groves with mountain views to Ojai olive Oil showroom. The electric asset wasn't necessary, but allowed us to go further with...More

I walked this with my sister after touring Ventura's Wednesday Flea market. Easy path near the ocean on one part, by the estuary & on into town. We only did as far as the main road, but saw herons & egrets at the estuary &...More

Would be easy to moderate ride if no high winds, unseasonable rain, mudslides or uncontrolled fire nearby.

A great paved bike path connecting Ventura to Ojai. Many access points - we like to park under the freeway overpass near Foster Park (free parking) just north of Ventura, and ride up to Ojai. That section is more scenic than the part that goes...More

This is a great ride, but you should have a decent bike if you plan to ride all the way to Ojai. There are some nice views. It’s much harder riding to Ojai, then riding to Ventura. If you really want an easy ride start...More

I cycled this path from Ventura to Ojai, then rode all over Ojai and then cycled back to Ventura.. This path is well maintained, and so much to see. Little towns like Casitas Springs, Oak View and old ventura oil fields.. It is peaceful, shaded,...More

This is a really nice, safe bike trail. It’s completely separated from traffic, completely paved. It starts down in Ventura and ends up in Ojai. It’s a rails to trails route that follows 90+% of an old railway. Down in Ventura it passes behind some...More

I’ve ridden this trail numerous times. It’s a very pleasant half-day or longer bike ride. The section that runs through Ojai is particularly pretty and tree-lined, and of course, Ojai is a wonderful artsy destination town. It’s not a “hidden” country trail; for most of...More
