Been riding this upper path for 20+ years and and the lower path (ventura to Foster park) since it was opened. Upper path is near impossible to ride from the tree roots lifting the asphalt and making it a washboard surface. Parts of the path...More

I’ve ridden this trail numerous times. It’s a very pleasant half-day or longer bike ride. The section that runs through Ojai is particularly pretty and tree-lined, and of course, Ojai is a wonderful artsy destination town. It’s not a “hidden” country trail; for most of...More

We take this trail often and it's a safe and healthy alternative route to get to Ojai! As well as getting around Ojai!

Always a pretty walk! Even when there's no water in the "river" it's still interesting. You never know what sorts of "creatures" might be seen!!

The path was a great reason to rent bikes in Ventura. The path is slightly uphill Ventura->Ojai which makes the ride back that much more enjoyable. The first ~2 miles out of Ventura is in an industrial area with not the best scenery. Ojai was...More

Lots of possibilities, the bike path ends right across the street from Vons, so, that's an option. I usually continue on to the Ventura Prominade bike path and exit at the pier, then walk over the pedestrian bridge to the... More
