To Our Ojai Community:

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we recover from the damage from the Thomas Fire on our trails. In the coming months trails will likely open and close depending on rain and changing trail conditions. Click here for current information and trail notifications »


Information for non-locals:

If you are looking for information about preserve and trail access and you do not live in the Ojai Valley, in accordance with the Stay Well at Home Order, and for your safety and ours, we strongly encourage you not to visit our preserves at this time to enable the quarantine of Covid-19 to be effective.

Help us keep our trails open!

We want you to enjoy the outdoors and be safe. Please follow these preserve rules:

  • Maintain 6 feet of distance between you and others at all times
  • No group gatherings
  • Don’t hike if you are feeling sick
  • Pack out your own trash
  • Keep dogs on leash
  • Don’t hike with people that you don’t live with
  • If a trailhead is busy, come back another time
  • Please walk or bike to your neighborhood trailhead only

The City of Ojai will be closing North Signal Street at Grand Avenue Friday afternoon thru Monday morning to local traffic only.

We encourage all residents to walk or bike to your nearest trailhead.
