“Breathtaking Views on Shelf Road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We researched this area before our visit and came across an article for Shelf Road and the Pratt Trail. A little drive into town and a right (traveling South) at the Post office, the road dead ends. Park your car and you will hike the cutest little trail. I would estimate a 1 1/2 each way. Half way up you will see little benches along the way and further around the loop you will see a few more benches. The views of the city and area are wonderful. A good hike for those not very athletic.

“Combo hike was a good work-out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We hiked Shelf Trail fire road and enjoyed the views and then added the newer "Pratt Trail"? which was steep, dusty, and hot, but we wanted more of a work-out so we were happy (but thirsty)!

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The concierge at the Ojai Resort recommended this trail. It was challenging but worth the effort. The views as we went further were breathtaking.

“Nice views of the valley”

Once you have left the last houses behind you it becomes more interesting ... nice views ... especially if you continue to the ridge or top!

“A pleasant hike with good views of the Ojai valley.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

If the weather permits and visibility is good this trail can make a very pleasant day. The trailis signed properly and is maintained in good condition. Many ggod spots of the Ojai valley and in some spots views of the ocean.
