The Ventura River Parkway Trail was built on a historic railroad spur (CA_VEN-1109H) constructed by the Ventura and Ojai Valley Railroad in 1898 and acquired by Southern Pacific in 1899. The trail, that runs along the easterly bank of the river, was designated aNational Recreation Trail in 2014. The “Ventura River Trail” part of the trail (completed in 1999) extends from the coast to Foster Park, and the “Ojai Valley Trail” part (completed in 1987) extends from Foster Park into the City of Ojai. The 15.8-mile trail (25.4 km), which runs along an abandoned Southern Pacific Railway right-of-way, is very popular with bicyclists, as well as walkers and horseback riders (on the Ojai Valley Trail segment). The vision of a “Ventura River Parkway,”a network of trails, vista points, and natural areas along the river that builds upon the existing trail, is being actively pursued by a coalition of stakeholders.
