this trail is about 4 or 5 miles long, it ends at old 101 then you cycle for about 7 miles before you connect with the next Caltrans trail which exits at Bates road. you can take it up to 150 which will go to Ojai. I just cycled it back to the Ventura Pier

The ride starts out well but there are many miles that you are riding on an unprotected bike path on the busy Old PCH road. The part of the ride within the protected two lane, two-way bike path was very pleasant with a beautiful ocean view. Wished this protected bike path was the whole way, not just a short part of the Rincon Bike Trail. We started in Ventura and rode north to Rincon Beach.

About 1 mi. south of the dedicated bike lane along Highway 101 where the bike lane joins Pacific Coast Highway (1) there is Ventura County Fire Station 25 where you'll find a clean restroom accessible from the outside; bike pump and tool station, and fresh drinking water fountain and several tables. This is an excellent stop between Carpinteria and Ventura and the smart way to avoid the porta-potty toilets. There are other restrooms open to cyclists at both Hobson and Faria Beach county campgrounds, and both have great snack bars where you can order hot meals, beverages and other nutrition drinks.

Nice views along here of the beach and it goes near the city. Looks similar to the rest of the pacific coast highway.

I live in Carpinteria and ride this trail to Ventura and back at least once a month. It's usually a good ride, though it can vary with the wind and weather. I ride through the non-trail gap on the 101, both coming and going (southbound and northbound on the return) and while requiring extra caution I've felt pretty safe - the southbound trip is a quick descent, and returning northbound it is stepp, takes a while, but the shoulder is very wide. It is possible to avoid the 101 entirely by using Bates Road/Rincon Hill Road. The new portion of the path is safe, well surfaced, usually uncrowded. You have to watch for the occasional jogger/pedestrian. If it's windy and you're into a headwind, it can be a real drudge. Same if it's cold and foggy. I would say the biggest spoiler is a strong headwind. Once you're off the new portion onto the old path it's a different story - bad surfaces, more foot traffic, and when on the original 101, now in part RV parking, you have to watch for vehicles. Some unmarked or poorly marked turns are required at the transition from the new path to the old original. Still, I keep coming back to this ride, it's mostly level, and in good weather with no wind, a really great ride and well worth it - I suspect nothing else quite like it in California, certainly way better than the Santa Monica/Venice beach path down to Redondo. There's a porta potty half way to Ventura, other than that you need to be ready to ride the full length.
