Excellent casual SoCal ride. Cold morning start off the Main St bike trail head warmed up quickly as this gradual climb, aided by tail winds headed towards Ojai almost 15 miles to town center. It's a totally paved bike path. You can make this a workout just by picking up the pace. Coming back you realize that the tail wind... More

This is a terrific riding experience! If you start at upper Ojai and ride to the ocean it is probably 15 or so miles long...and it is all downhill. The scenery is terrific while you are in the upper Ventura River Valley but becomes a little tedious in the lower third as it goes through more commercial areas. The paving... More

Very nice walk along the ocean. Fun place to watch the surfers. Made especially for bicycles. Lots of dog walkers.

Nice paved path for biking, skating, or walking. It's wide enough to pass people and not run into someone going the opposite way. It's kept very clean and beautiful!

This path is used by bikers wanting a safe place to ride to the ocean....the trail/path is also used by walkers, runners, and roller blades. There are beautiful parts on the the path as well as some industrial parts. Watch out as there are several places the path crosses street.

Although most of the bike path is along the road, it's still very pleasant. Bring your own bike or rent one from a couple different places in town. Or just take a walk. Once in Ojai, the path veers from the road and gets kind of secluded and that part is interesting. All-in-all, a nice outdoor experience.

If you want to be safe and away from cars this is the perfect place for you. If you want to go fast and not have to go around walkers, dogs, strollers or even roller blades this is not for you.

The part just north of Ventura is industrial, and at one point you have to actually bike past a freeway entrance, but don't get discouraged. Just keep biking up toward Ojai, and eventually you will get to beautiful hillsides, twisted oaks, sloping vistas, the a pedestrian bridge across an attractive stretch of the Ventura River, and eventually the Ojai Valley....

A fun, and not overly taxing ride. The view gets better the further up you go, but even down low in the old oil industry areas its still interesting. A nicely paved path that rewards you for going at least 5 miles up from the start.
