48.8 Miles Total - 2081 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Josiah Roe

A classic, 50 mile cycling loop through Ventura Canyon, the Ojai Valley, and the Santa Paula Creek ravine.

The Ventura - Ojai - Santa Paul loop is a classic half-century loop throughs some of the most beautiful cycling roads on the Central Coast.

Beginning in Ventura and heading on the off-road (but paved) Ventura / Ojai trails, this loop then heads into downtown Ojai before following Ojai Valley Road all the way to Santa Paula. From there follow West Telegraph Road back into Ventura.

The loop is nearly 50 miles and has 2081 of elevation gain, and the downhill through Santa Paula canyon is fantastic.
