Description

If your furry friend has been lying around all day, grab the leash and head over to the Ojai Valley Trail so they can get their four legs moving. What was once a rail corridor for the Ventura and Ojai Valley Railroad is now a pawsome trail that’s perfect for a little doggy cardio.

On the southern end, the trail begins inside Foster Park. It stretches 9.5 miles north to the charming town of Ojai. Those who designed the trail took all trail users into consideration. One side of the trail is made of packed dirt and woodchips so equestrians can enjoy a comfortable ride. The other side is paved for cyclists, joggers, and of course, dog walkers.

As they head north, your four legged friend will enjoy puptacular scenery of rural Ventura County. The mountains can be seen and the trail crosses through groves of oak trees. A section of the trail runs parallel to Ventura River and over a bridge. While trotting along, your pooch can get a glimpse of the small communities that are nestled between Ojai and Ventura. Just before the trail ends near Bryant Street in Ojai, the trail crosses through Libbey Park. Take a little detour and let your pal explore this green space.

Parking in Foster Park costs $2.00 during the week and $4.00 on the weekend. Restrooms and drinking water are available in both Foster and Libbey Parks. Please note dogs are not allowed in Foster Park, so once your pal is out of your vehicle, head straight for the trail. If your pup isn’t up for a 19 mile round trip, leave a shuttle at the Ojai trailhead or arrange for a pick up and drop off. Don’t forget to pack water and clean up bags. No bones about it, a walk along Ojai Valley Trail will make your pup one happy hound!
