The Ojai Loop – A Great Hike in Ojai

For those who who love to experience nature and all of Ojai’s glorious energy, this is a great hike for you! Start at Pratt trail head near the top of Signal Street. Hike up Pratt Trail, upFoothill Road, past the water tower till you come to what locals call the “saddle” or better yet a fork in the road. At this junction you could go left and the trail will hook up to the Cozy Dell Trail which is also a phenomenal hike but today, we went right on the Fuel Break Trail.

This meanders in the gorgeous backcountry, some ups and downs of small hills varying steepness. It is a bit exposed so it was great today being it was a bit cloudy. Tremendous views of Ojai and the majestic National Forest. Eventually, this trail will come to Gridley Road. If you have small children, I would recommend parking an extra car at this point. We hiked down Gridley for a short distance and then took Shelf Road back to Signal street where are cars were. This hike has 3 great trails in one giant Loop!

I clocked it at 6.7 miles, it took us about 1.5 hours and we ran some along the way. If your visiting Ojai, this is a great morning excursion! Have fun!
