Riverview Trailhead Scheduled to Close

By on April 8, 2014 in Around Our Valley, Featured, News, Press

VRP TrailheadsAt the end of September, the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy’s 10 year easement that allows us to maintain the Ventura River Preserve’s Riverview Trailhead will expire.

Many people probably don’t realize that the Riverview Trailhead on Rice Road does not sit on Ojai Valley Land Conservancy property. This land and about forty acres immediately below the trailhead are owned by the Church of the Living Christ in Meiners Oaks.  The Church of the Living Christ has generously allowed the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy to maintain this trailhead on its land at no cost for a decade.

On September 30, 2014 the trailhead easement will terminate and this trailhead will close.

The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy would like to be able to reopen a trailhead here at some point in the future.  The Church of the Living Christ is making preparations to sell this trailhead property and the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy hopes to have a chance to buy it, although we will have to compete with other potential buyers.

In anticipation of the closing, Riverview Trailhead regulars should begin to familiarize themselves with the Oso Trailhead to the north and/or the Old Baldwin Trailhead to the south.  All parts of the Ventura River Preserve that are accessible by the Riverview Trailhead are also accessible by these other two trailheads.”
