I used to live in Ojai.You can ride your bike from Ojai to Santa Barbara. It is a beautiful ride along the coast.Ojai is above the ocean so takes a bit of energy to get back up after a smooth ride down.So well worth all efforts.

We are bikers and have biked this path. It's an easy path; but there is some uphill going. You can start at the Pier and wind your way through the town, continuing on to Ojai. There are some stops along the way, a regional park with bathrooms, towns that you wind either through or around and ultimately Ojai. We love... More

We really enjoyed this ride! We rode from the beach in Ventura up to Ojai and back. The weather was perfect and the ride not overly strenuous. I can't wait to ride it again Enjoy!

I have never done this path. How's that for a review. My wife loves this path. She and several of her girlfriends have often taken this path to Ojai to have lunch. It is an easy trip and a great getaway for the day. It is not a hard core trip and a pleasant way to spend the day.

Goes from the Ventura beach promenade to downtown Ojai. It's a mild uphill slope from Ventura to Ojai. You can also park at Foster Park and go to Ventura or Ojai from there (closer to Ventura). Wonderful ride!

This bike path is easier than you would expect, for it goes from sea level all the way to the foothills of Ojai. The secret is the fact that it is on an old railway grade, so it has a very steady slope, challenging but not punishing. I do want to warn you about the goathead thorns. I had to... More

I had to drive over an hour to get to Ventura to ride on this trail. I highly recommend being well hydrated before you start, especially if it's a hot day. The trail does slowly go uphill which I didn't really notice until the ride back down, which only took me 45 minutes. There is a picnic/bathroom/drinking fountain area at... More

This is an enjoyable ride to Ojai. The views of the Ventura River are limited but have been good when the foliage is low. It's uphill from Foster Park to Ojai which is about halfway. There are bathrooms here. The downhill return trip is fast but there might be headwinds that can be strong.

This bike path is a local favorite and can't be beat! I've ridden it many times and I recommend ring in any season. You will not be disappointed and it's free!
