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.

This is an awesome biking trail. Parts of it are nice and easy, but there are some big hills, too! My friend's husband does this trail every weekend because it's so beautiful and a great workout.

We rented our bikes from Ventura Bike Depot on W. Main Street and were advised that this valley trail to Ojai would be a good choice for our four hours: up the valley, lovely cup of coffee at Noso Vita and back to Ventura. Perfect!

The Ojai Valley Trail, from Foster Park to downtown Ojai, is one of the best, part of the nationwide Rails to Trails Conservancy, which buys up train tracks no longer in use and converts then into in bike trails. We have enjoyed this trail three times now and look forward to the next time. I would like to bike it... More

We biked from DT Ventura to Ojai. I believe it's between 12 & 15 miles. I can only reiterate what a number of reviewers have already said. Heading north can be tough. There is a gentle grade all the way to Ojai. I didn't have the greatest bike so it may have been a bit tougher for me than it... More

Found out about this bike path last week on Facebook, so had to give it a try. Sounded like you are supposed to park in Foster Park, which a) I had trouble finding, then b) had a locked gate at the entrance at 7:00am (not sure if it ever opened) and c) would have cost $4 if it was open.... More
