Just hiked this yesterday to gauge my hiking level. Would not suggest a beginner to hike this because getting to the Cross is pretty steep. But once you get there it is Oh-So-Worth-It. Magnificent views.

It's not too long, kinda steep, and most of it is through town and a residential neighborhood. But for some reason, I really, really liked it. Ocean, downtown Ventura, a very well kept up neighborhood, that leads to a short dirt trail, and the best panorama view of Ventura you will ever see. As you're approaching the hill, look for the cross, that's where you are going.

Super fun local uphill trek. Catch fabulous views of the city and pier. You can keep going up, just follow the dirt path. The trail ends at the shooting range, but if you still want to go further, pick up the botanical garden trail. Lots of fun. Bring water; it’s hot and dusty and you’ll get thirsty.

I started behind City Hall and entered the botanical garden. If you hike to the very top beyond the roads you will have the best view.

Always a good walk after work. Beautiful views at the top and several fun pathways during the second half of the hill. Can get a little busy right around 5:00

nice views of ocean and Islands especially if you keep going as high as you can wandering around the Botanical Gardens Trail and by the sheriff department city of Ventura shooting range and in between. there is a good steep railroad tie steps path up above the cross that is a thigh burner. A good to local hike for my skiing workouts. cool ocean breezes add to its character.

Great first hike! Tons of beautiful scenery and is hard enough to make you sweat but easy enough where you aren't miserable! Will do it again!
