trail locations for Ventura, California

Trail was a nice blend of up and down. Went a second day for a short hike and - Rattlesnake on the trail and he was huge! Snake didn't fit in well with this family oriented park. I won't go back.

Yeah, there's no trail here. Even the folks who work there say there's no trail here. There's also very little water and lots of goatheads. There's a million less than there was because my dog brought them all home! But have fun!

My wife and I highly recommend this trail for easy bicycling. Views are great once you are past the industrial area. Easy grade going up to Ojai and the entire path is paved. We loved that the trail is close to the ocean in Ventura with some great ocean breezes. The trail also referred to as the Ventura River Trail.

Made me sore- which is good! Bring your dogs with you too!!

It's a cool trail, the version ALLTRAILS shows you used to be open. The landowners decided not to allow this after some locals had a bonfire and left all their garbage (including the burned wood). HOWEVER, 2 trees is accessible via arroyo verde park, it's much longer but doable. You will be fined if you attempt the normal two trees trail, in daylight.

Fantastic views of stunning cliffs and the great open Pacific Ocean and vast landscapes. Gorgeous at sunset.

Had an amazing time on this trail. Beautiful views and wide open trails.

I am a beginner, it was work. But will do it again. Can't give up! This will Get me in shape!

At first it seemed like a simple trail. As I continued, I discovered that there were spots where it was steep climbing and your stamina was definitely tested. Overall, I enjoyed the hike and would do it again.

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.

Yes, see comments below. This trail should be removed from the list. It was a waste of a trip to get to the trail and realize (after seeing the signage) that it wasn't ok to hike there... at first I wondered if the signs were defunct, having been graffitied all over and looking really rusted and old, but I was too nervous to continue. Please remove!

Moderate1 mile hike with the kiddos!!! Easy Day!

Beautiful beach view, walk on pavement or use beach access along the water.

enjoyed the view of the lake ❤

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.

Not very challenging. It's a trail off of the park so not much of a scenic hike but still pretty view of the beach and Ventura. Good for beginnings or with children
