Ventura River Trail

Worth It

June, 2024 by dmurphy52

This path sits between, and is connected to, the Ojai Valley Trail as well as the Omer Raines Coastal Path. It is in good condition, and as of June/July 2024 undergoing a very substantial improvement on a fairly lengthy section. The grades are mild, the scenery decent, and only a few rough patches. Safe for kids. Highly recommend extending onto the Omer Raines path, as well as the path up to Ojai, if you're feeling energetic.

Ojai Valley Trail

Good Ride, Could Use Some Improvement

June, 2024 by dmurphy52

Rode the length of the trail from Foster Park, with my wife. We're both in our 70's. While sections of this ride are excellent, what keeps it from being a five star path are a number of factors. In parts, the trail is rough, and needs maintenance. The fairly frequent road crossings as you approach Ojai set this path aside from five star paths that use underpasses or overpasses. Signage is only fair. Not for inexperienced young riders, secondary to the road crossings and rough sections. All that said, for moderately experienced riders, this is a very good ride.

Calleguas Creek Bike Path

Short and Sweet

June, 2024 by dmurphy52

This wide, excellently maintained bike path is a brief but scenic ride. With only a few short semi-steep climbs and descents while riding through the underpasses, riders of even modest ability will not find it difficult. Not for someone seeking any serious training, almost better for a stroll than a bike ride. Either way, wheels or feet, it's a pleasant outing. For maximum distance, start at the Pleasant Valley Fields sporting complex, when the path comes to a T, go left or right, ride the length of the segment along the creek, and return to your parking space.

Arroyo Simi Bike Path

Love our Simi Bike Trail!

April, 2024 by juliefernholz

The newly paved portion is especially nice! And our doggie (Ruby) loves the ride too¿¿

Rincon Bike Trail

Bring ear plugs

January, 2024 by dmurphy52

This short trail is a bit of an engineering marvel. Smooth pavement, beautiful scenery, and because it is within feet (separated by an impressive and artistic barrier) of Highway 101, very LOUD. Good luck if you're trying to have a conversation with a fellow rider.

Nice small capacity parking lot at the southern end. Very safe for a family outing, though a bit of caution will be needed in the one street crossing in La Conchita. At the northern end there is a beautiful park, suitable for picnics, and with nice ocean overlooks.

I ride about 20 miles/day, and found the trail a bit short, and a bit too noisy. One of my brothers, who doesn't ride at all on a regular basis, and who is less sensitive to noise than I am, found the trail "perfect". And there you have it!

Chandler Bikeway

Nice Trail

November, 2023 by hw49rbyfm5

My family and I came for the first time on a Sunday. Smooth ride and family friendly. Definitely obey the signs as stay on your lane. Would recommend this trail.

Ventura River Trail

Like Paris-Roubaix

September, 2023 by tomspeirce

Nice trail but when I rode it this summer a large section was still covered in gravel from last winter's rainstorms and mud/rockslides. Not sure if it's been cleaned yet but if you are on skinny tires be prepared.

Sierra Bike Trail

Excellent trail

September, 2023 by dave444

This is a nice rail-with-trail for getting around locally in the Lancaster/Palmdale area. A word of caution though - when going north and crossing Sierra Highway from west to east at Technology Drive (1/2 mile south of Rancho Vista Blvd/Avenue P) be sure to wait for the WALK signal, and don’t just rely on the green traffic signal for the cars. This is because traffic from the right (northbound traffic) doesn’t stop when the light is green for the traffic on Technology Drive.

From the southern end of the trail you can also connect to the Avenue S Bike Trail. This is a nice trail (which is not a rail-trail) that extends for several miles in an east-west direction (with a few gaps). There is also a gap of about 1.5 miles between the two trails.

Santa Barbara Beach Trail

Great views, good for families

September, 2023 by staceylydon

Easy bike ride and nice walk for families.

Fillmore Bike Path

Not Good At All

August, 2023 by happybug1025

It was an awful trail path for walking or biking. Too many people taking up the whole path, too many unleashed dogs, and Fillmore residents loitering on path as well as off to the side of path creepily watching girls and woman while drinking beer. I felt extremely uncomfortable. Trash left all over and people don’t pick up after their dogs. I can tell you for sure that I will not take this oath trail again.

Arroyo Simi Bike Path

Great bike path

Distance is good and enjoyable sights

Los Angeles River Trail

South Portion of Trail

November, 2022 by wfo163

On 06NOV2022 I chose to attempt a 7(ish) mile run along the LA river starting at the trail's terminus in Long Beach. The run took me from Golden Shore up to about Willow. Nearly as soon as the trail turns north from the trailhead the nature of this trail becomes apparent - This is not a safe trail for pedestrians. There are multiple campers, addicts, feces (human and otherwise), and piles of garbage all along the trail. It is an absolute human rights atrocity. Some of the campers have built decent sites off of the trail but most have built castles of garbage and some have built literal fortresses out of the riprap that is used along the river wall. Some of the people along that route were friendly enough and said hello as I passed. Others were not welcoming and a couple were down right threatening including one that tried to block my path and stop my run. This brings up perhaps the most dangerous part - there is no way to escape the trail should trouble happen. There is a high chainlink fence that runs between trail access. If a person finds themselves being chased or assaulted they cannot get away. This portion of this trail needs to be avoided if on foot. There were a lot of cyclists and perhaps this is an option if you are moving quickly, but even then this should only be attempted if part of a large group.

This trail has the potential to be awesome, but the current issues make it downright intimidating and dangerous.
