Great trail for views and people watching. Really enjoy watching the surfers. Got hit by a wave while walking on trail yesterday morn, got completely drenched, but enjoyed every minute of it,
hand full of people on the trail got a good laugh out of it as well
Took my 6 year old grandchild on this trail today, we got a decent leg work out. Sad to see how brown everything is along the trail. I've just moved here from Utah and am realizing the extent of the drought here. Still a lovely state to live in. Look forward to exploring more trails in this area.
the trail that All Trails shows is "illegal" and you'll be fined if you get caught on it! but if you're rebellious like me and don't care what the trespassing signs say and just want to enjoy the beautiful view that the dumb landowners don't want you to enjoy, go for it! I did and it was completely worth it. the tree on top is graffitied, but for a dead tree it's pretty cool in an artsy way. Also, the tree has a swing on it, you could sit there and swing for hours.
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.
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.
