Hiking the Ojai Meadows Preserve

Ojai Meadows Preserve Loop Trail »

The Ojai Meadows Preserve has a 0.64 mile trail that loops around protected wetlands, meadows and Eucalyptus trees. This easygoing trail has posted signs with information about the preserve’s restoration, its history and wildlife. If you are a bird lover or want to get out for a quiet stroll this is the place to be.

Extended Loop Trail »

Want to explore more? Walk the additional 0.14 mile loop that follows Taormina Meadows past the Eucalyptus Grove back to the loop trail.

Lomita Avenue Entrance »

The Besant Meadows trailhead is located next to Meiners Oaks Elementary School and is often used as a shortcut to Nordhoff High School. The entire preserve is accessible from this entrance.
