Special thanks to Doug & Leanne Campbell, Tom Esensten, Mimi  Gottlieb, Mike Gourley, Kay Martin and Rob Youngan additional 2.5 miles of trails for a connection to a new Ventura River Preserve trailhead. Currently the Riverview and Oso trailheads provide access to the northern and central areas of the preserve. The new trailhead will provide a third connection to the Ventura River Preserve’s twenty miles of trails just off Hwy 150 at Old Baldwin Road.

The new trailhead is funded by a Proposition 50 grant from the California River Parkways program, so that Ojai Valley residents and visitors may enjoy additional access to hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, and wheelchair access to recreational trails along the southern part of the Preserve. New signs, maps and trail markers are currently under development. In addition to general and horse trailer  parking, two designated ADA parking spaces and an adjoining 1,600 foot-long wheelchair accessible trail will make it possible for more people to enjoy the area.

The Ventura County Watershed Protection District in partnership with the OVLC will enhance recreational opportunities by building the new trailhead and amenities. OVLC will maintain the trailhead.
