Easy trail, not much views besides the small river. There's many interconnected trails. We did the loop in 1hr. They do have signs guiding you to other trails.

Lots of interconnected trails, some still closed as of 12/1/18 due to the fire. Some trails have been bulldozed to make fireroads/breaks. Burn damage is tragic, but it isn’t too ashy or smoky in the trails that are open.

Gorgeous trails with many options. The trails are clearly marked but it can still get confusing. We absolutely loved it!

Such nice soft sand / dirt for those with weak or healing knees and ankles. Fast, change of scenery for the dogs. Might see some majestic horses. Not busy, feel the quiet breeze of the Ojai Valley. Loved. Lots of sun exposure so bring your hat.
