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.

Ojai to Ventura Paved Bike Path is amazing! Entirely separate from the road, except where cross major street. Shaded in many spots. Possible to ride down to the beach 16 miles from Ojai. The ride back is well graded with lots of spots to take a breather if needed. If one rides to the Beach and then does not wish... More

This is great for walking, running, biking or strolling, which is more my style! The Ventura end is a bit industrial in nature, but that changes as you ascend.

This is a wonderful path that provides miles of jogging, walking or biking pleasure. At the beginning in Ventura it is quite close to the freeway(s), but stick with it and the road veers off. The path remains close to the water and some very beautiful shoreline. It's nice and wide with plenty of space for dogs, runners, bikes. Good... More

The first section is through an industrial area of town. We much prefer the walks after Foster Park, and recommend parking there and proceeding toward Ojai.

I am a bit reluctant to write a review about this cycling path, which is well-known among locals but pretty much unknown outside its immediacy. Even on weekends there are not many cyclists around, which makes for a peaceful ride. I ride from Ventura to Ojai, stop at Foster park, use the restrooms, explore the area a little bit. During...

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
