I loved this short easy hike to a lovely waterfall. The trail is easy to follow and a popular hike. At the end is a beautiful waterfall and rocks to sit down on to take it all in. Bring a picnic and sit for a while . It's great for families.

This is a beautiful and short walk with many trees providing shade along the dirt path. I come here almost every year when I visit Ojai with friends, and I'm never disappointed. I came here in July and there was still a little bit of water coming down. Very pretty place to take pictures with the falls covered in moss... More

This hike is a comfortable 2-mile round trip hike, so it is very doable for most people. My daughter was pregnant, so we opted for this. Also, Ojai has a tendency to be very hot; and this hike, surprisingly, was shaded 90% of the time with a wooded surrounding. Very pleasant, very safe, it ends in some caves and waterfalls... More

So I was here late December and there wasn't much of a water fall as a trickle - but it is still a gorgeous walk. Very short - I would say 15-20 minutes. But there is a point in it where the sun hits the trees and you feel like you are in an enchanted forest! About a 30-40 minute... More

While in Ojai for a wedding I decided to take a bike ride up Rt. 33 to the Rose Valley Trail. This was recommended to me by the LBS (local bike shop) where I rented a first class Scott CF road bike. They warned me that after a couple of rolling hills the ride was going to be another 12... More

Rose Valley has so much to offer. Wildlife, hiking, swimming and great camping sites at Middle Lion camp-grounds. The young Black Bears in summer are just after food, not people, so put your trash secure and hidden at night! Fun for all.

Went in April 2012 and got there saw a big red X on a sign but continued on to find out there is no waterfall due to lack of water!! Didn't go very far on the trail, we could see it from the parking lot dried up. Didn't get an adventure pass cuz we couldn't figure out where to get... More
