One of the best bike trails in California. You can access it starting at Sanbuenaventura State Beach or downtown Ojai. It is a fairly gradual incline up to Ojai. The fun part is having lunch in Ojai before going back to Ventura, or the reverse is tacos on the pier before returning to Ojai. Great bike trail.

We rented bikes close to the trail, easy to follow, very few traffic crossings. Nice paved path along varied city and rural settings. Some beautiful flora and great mountain views, some parts edged by 8 foot chain link fencing. Very few restroom opportunities or places to get water. Trip to Ojai an easy climb and a wonderful fast downhill back.

We had a great time following the trail from Ojai to Ventura. A long ride, but mostly flat or downhill from Ojai. The last 4 miles are kind of boring through the industrial section of Ventura, and almost completely flat. Just to note: 4 of us tried to take the #16 bus back to Ojai from Ventura and the bus can only accommodate 3 bikes on the rack. The bus only runs 1x/hr so it was not convenient to split up. My husband ended up calling an uber XL for 2 bikes and passengers while 2 of us took the bus.

This scenic trail starting at the Ventura beach stretches from Ventura to Ojai taking you through Ventura’s historic “oil fields”. As you meander along you will pass through the remote community of Casitas Springs, home of Jonny Cash. Continuing on you will travel through Oak View, Mira Monte, and finally into the heart of the Ojai Valley. Along the way there are plenty of places to stop to get a drink like the Ojai Valley Brewery or stop for a bite to eat at Ojai Pizza or the famous Boccali’s. Whatever you choose you’re sure to have a lovely adventure.
