Getting Around Ojai

You can easily explore downtown Ojai by foot. Most shops, galleries and restaurants are located in a compact, two-block area. Bicycle rentals can be arranged by your innkeeper or hotel concierge.

The Ojai Trolley is another enhancement to the small town charm and experience that Ojai offers visitors. It's a great option for sightseeing, with a route that goes from the center of town to the Ojai Valley Inn. Just one dollar to ride!

The Ojai Valley Trail is open from dawn to dusk to pedestrians, bicyclists, horseback riders, and others on non-motorized vehicles. The paved, 9.5-mile trail stretches from Foster Park in West Ventura, through downtown Ojai, and ends at Soule Park. The trail is an old Southern Pacific Railroad track-bed and follows the line of the Ventura River; it runs parallel to Highway 33. Along the way you'll see scenic views of Ojai Valley and a number of public art sculptures in Ventura.

Topa Topa Taxi and Ojai Taxi offer taxi service, while Ojai Limousine Service offers a private, more luxurious transportation option.  Gold Coast Transit runs from Ventura to select dropoff and pickup spots in Ojai.  The nearest Amtrak train station is in Ventura, only 15 miles away.

Stop by the Ojai Valley Chamber of Commerce at 206 N. Signal Street, Suite P, for street maps. The Chamber office and Visitors Bureau are open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4 pm.
