Gradual incline all the way from Ventura to Ojai.. just enough so you have to peddle almost all the time. But from Ojai to Ventura you can coast 90% of the time.. So, if you have young kids, or older people... haul the bikes to Ojai and ride downhill to Ventura. If you are reasonably fit, it is an easy... More

This is a great trail that runs from Ojai all the way to the ocean. Great for walking, jogging or bike riding. Many spots to get on or off along the way.

My family with kids aged 8 and 10 set off on this Ventura to Ojai bike path from the first trailhead in Ventura based on the reviews from this site. On the right was a fence with concertina wire protecting dwellings made of rotting tin and other trash. On the left was a ditch with head to toe homeless people.... More

This is a very nice trail that's flat, but uphill grade towards Ojai. Not a lot of places to bike around Ventura as it's either too hilly for this flatlander, or too congested.

Take this bike trail trip on an electric bike, it was a great way to enjoy the sites and we just cruised up the hills with no effort and peddled when we wanted to peddle. Our group rented our bikes from Ebike of Santa Barbara! They delivered the bikes and we had a blast!

This is a fun thing to do in Ventura! Nice smooth path, slight uphill to Ojai. But coast back home! Only advice, ride bikes that fit you.

Know that this ride is an uphill all the way to Ojai but the reward is to have a nice lunch when you stop and then coast all the way back down to the ocean. One of the best experiences on a bicycle in Ventura County.

This bike path is mostly away from the road. Many pele start at Foster Park, but starting the trail near Main St and Hwy provides interesting scenery, including Brooks Institute, where there is a old town filming set where several movies 33. It's an easy ride, slight uphill going towards Ojai, downhill going to Ventura.

For those of us who are not great bike riders, I took 13 middle-school-girls on this 15+ mile bike ride. If you begin at Libby Park in Ojai, you can ride all the way to the beach in Ventura and it is almost downhill the entire way. Makes you feel great with the minimum of pedaling! And, of course, the... More

My husband and I (both over 60) cycled the path from Ventura to Ojai, about 30 miles return. The path tends gently uphill for quite a few miles going northbound into Ojai, but that makes it easier getting back to Ventura after lunch!
