This ride is flat, wide bike path, minimal lights and stops with cool ocean breezes. 20 miles round trip. Long stretches to hammer if that's your thing. Park in the Mrs Olsen parking lot at Harbor Blvd and W Channel Island Blvd. Ride North along Harbor Blvd to Beachmont St. (Lt), (Rt) Seaview Ave, (Lt) Peninsula St, (Rt) Pierpont Blvd,... More

Cycled from Ventura to Ojai, hired bikes from Bike Depot, which is near the start of the path, we managed the ride there, coffee & back in 4 hours. Great easy cycle path,

I'm a Native of Ventura - and this is definitely one of the best ways to experience this part of Ventura County. For those that are not avid bicyclists, I'd suggest starting up in the Ojai Valley and riding "downhill." Pace yourself. This use to be a railroad line.

Trail was part of the Mountains2Beach Half Marathon we were running the next day and we had brought our bikes to check it out. We only went up and back the first 10 miles of the trail to save ourselves for the race. Part of the national Rail to Trails network that has bike trails on former railroad beds, the... More

If you like to bike, you should definitely take this trail. It is a gradual uphill to Ojai, but, not hard. Once you get out of Ventura, plenty of woods and scenery. Ocean breeze kept us cool.

This trail is made for bikes but it's a great walking trail. Once you are out of Ventura you hit some real CA scenery. The last part from Oak View to Ojai is too close to the highway so don't walk the whole thing. Bus service is available so you can jump off the trail and take a ride back... More

This is one of our favorite rides. Most of the ride is on a path with a few crossing of streets. It is a Moderate ride due to some windings uphill. I have to admit that I almost wrote Easy ride; but some might find it somewhat challenging. That said, you really don't have to ride the whole way. It... More

This is a great riding area for travelers and locals. For the healthy and hearty, the ride up to Ojai is a slow climb with views of the Ventura River, mountains, and wildlife. I've seen birds, Coy-wolf/coyote, roadrunner and the frogs are out this time of year, near the trail. It's a joy to be so close to this natural... More

This filled a day of our family's PCH road-trip. We hired bikes from the Ventura Cycle Depot (very professional, reasonable prices), which was conveniently located at the start of the Bike Path. We used a tag-along for our 6 yr old, and were glad that we did; although the gradient was never excessive, the final couple of miles into Ojai... More
