Ringed by mountains laced with many miles of trails, the Ojai Valley has much to offer fat tire fans. It has long been a popular playground for two-wheeled adventurers, and in many ways the riding here is more fun than ever. There’s a trail for every age and ability.
In Ojai, you can explore steep, zig-zagging singletracks leading to ridge tops with sweeping vistas, wide fire roads that traverse long, deep canyons, and a few flat, easy trails for more contemplative riding. There are new trails, reopened trails and trails being kept open by volunteers who also ride them.
