New trails connect Mira Monte, Meiners Oaks

The OVLC will manage and maintain the trails and signage, and provide oversight of public use. 
“From our perspective, we have the Meadows Preserve right next door. By linking up with the KFA property, we basically join new neighborhoods. The neighborhood over by Loma Drive can walk right on to the preserve,” said Brian Starke, OVLC's executive director.
Krishnamurti contemplated about the property's beauty in his writings.
“You can sit there protected from the sun, never feeling lonely, with the tree as your companion,” he wrote.
Krishnamurti passed away in 1986 at his Ojai home.
“Symbolically rejoining the landscape that inspired thousands through the work of Krishnamurti, these new trails honor the history of the land and bring its beauty to new generations,” said Tania Parker of the OVLC.
In addition to establishing a new trail, the OVLC has adopted two well-known Los Padres National Forest trails: the Pratt Trail up to the Foothill Trail and the Gridley Trail up to Fuelbreak Road Trail.
Maintenance of the trails and trailheads will now be coordinated by the OVLC and undertaken by the its 15-member volunteer trail crew.
“Federal funding for trail maintenance has declined over many years,” said Parker. “The Adopt-a-Trail program helps stretch federal budgets and encourages local communities to get involved in the care of outdoor areas.”
The addition of the Saddle Trails and the newly adopted trails brings the total length of OVLC-managed trails to 27 miles, she noted.
