The trip is scenic and mostly downhill, some parts along the river... More

The completed bike path really goes through a beautiful area, but there are several roadway crossings, so slow down for those and watch for cars. There is a slight incline during much of it, but most of it is relatively flat or easy to climb. Several good places to eat once you get into Ojai.

Start at San Pedro turn in at Surfer's Point and can go all the way to Ojai. This is a beautiful, well maintained path that shows the awesome diversity Ventura County has to offer. Be aware of your surroundings however, as a number of less than savory characters hang out along the path at the beach and for the first... More

This path is wonderful for bike riding. It gets alittle scary in some parts, if you are alone. Deserted areas. But have ridden it up to Ojai and then rode to soule park. Great excercise. Avoid mid summer, unless you like heat...

This is an easy ride from Foster Park to Ojai for breakfast and coast back or from the Ventura State beach for a longer ride. Safe all paved trail.

Scenic path taking you up to Ojai from Ventura. Some parts of the path have some roots making the path bumpy. Some stop signs at road crossings. A gentle steady climb all the way up. About 20 miles on way.

Technically, this is 2 trails: the newer Ventura River Trail from Ventura to Foster Park, and the older Ojai Valley Trail from Foster Park to Ojai. Between Ventura and Foster Park, the trail is completely flat passing the back yards of residences and quasi industria areas and even what looks like a derelict oil refinery or chemical plant. Once past... More

Runs from Ventura to Ojai with only moderate hills. The path runs through some areas that is quite beautiful and away from traffic

Bike rentals along to boardwalk are inexpensive and the people watching is worthwhile. It takes about 45 minutes, easy ride, to ride the entire stretch just along the beach and back.
