This is a rather grueling climb at the start, though it was pretty much all downhill after that. It's a beautiful ride, especially in the spring, as the hills are very green. There are great views of Ojai, mountains, and the ocean/islands in the distance. There is an option to return as a loop on highway 150 to Ojai. Sulfur Mountain Road, from Casitas Springs is a wide dirt road, but it's hard-packed and very good for biking.
Great!! Beautiful and quite trail
Loved it The first 5 miles were very very nice
Amazing open views of the beautiful hills.
Had an amazing time on this trail. Beautiful views and wide open trails.
Stunning views and steady uphill climb (which means return trip is great!). I went 4.5 miles out and turned around... later on I will have to go back and do the whole trail! Nice, wide road, and alternate views of Lake Casitas and the neighboring hills of Ojai, as well as (I think, unless it was just haze) a distant view of the ocean.
Was able to hike it from the bottom and get picked up on the top past the last gate. Every bit of 11 miles. Good workout at a pace (about 3.2 MPH). A good (basically) all uphill hike. 3.5 hours starting before 6:am. Didn't see a soul - and great views of the ocean, islands then in certain spots Ojai to the left. Perfect marine layer day for cool but could still see the islands.
Good hike, wide open trail. Great views. Not may hikers on the trial but lots of mountain bike riders.
