We love riding this trail. It seems to be for bikes only, so there is no dodging walkers or skateboards. For the most part the scenery is good. It's all uphill one way, but is an easy grade. Going back is only a touch easier as there always seems to be a head wind. But it's great exercise and not... More

This is excellent if it is the sort of thing you are looking for. Not for road racers or for real mountain bikers, but perfect if you want a family ride or leisurely cruise from the coast up to ojai and back, or just do it one way and leave a shuttle car at the other end. If you do... More

I live in Virginia but keep a bike in Ventura so I can do this ride. Best to go in the morning before Ojai gets too hot. I'll be back.

We enjoyed walking along the beach on the path. Stop and watch the kite surfers at Surfers Point. Sit and enjoy the beach scene and watching the surfers catch a wave.

I like being able to not have to constantly look over my shoulder for cars- and this trail is great for that- separated from autos- occasionally crossing paths with them- a good ride from the beach to Ojai. However- you will pass though some of the spots along the way actively processing/pumping oil. Industrial- old dilapidated buildings- or storage yards-... More

This path is manageable even for novice riders. The way to Ojai is a slow uphill grade; just take your time. Get to Ojai, walk around and have lunch, knowing it is downhill the whole way back. The path is one third industrial, two thirds beautiful. Shaded, smooth, not crowded (we were there on. Friday). A great activity for friends,... More

This is a well maintained, paved bike path. Is it any easy uphill grade to Ojai and of course, easier going back. Pay attention, It can get a little busy on the week-ends as it is used by walker's, kids and animals. During the week I saw a bobcat hanging out in the shade on the edge of Ventura.

16 miles of well maintained trail with an excellent destination in Ojai. Scenic as you get near Ojai - not so much at the Ventura end. Modest incline on the way to Ojai, nice relaxing return back to Ventura. Links to other trails along beach.

I've been riding this path sense it first began years ago. Now that it is done, you can ride from the beach at Ventura to the mountain hide away of Ojai. The city's and county have done a wonderful job of this project and we are proud of it. You can walk, jog, run or ride your bike and enjoy... More
