Navigating the Ojai Experience

Bicycle rentals are available from The Mob Shop & Bicycles of Ojai.


The Ojai Valley Trail is open from dawn to dusk to pedestrians, bicyclists, horseback riders, and others on non-motorized vehicles. The paved, 9.5-mile trail stretches from Foster Park in West Ventura, through downtown Ojai, and ends at Soule Park. The trail is an old Southern Pacific Railroad track-bed and follows the line of the Ventura River; it runs parallel to Highway 33. Along the way you’ll see scenic views of Ojai Valley and a number of public art sculptures in Ventura.
