Gridley is Ojai's classic mountain bike ride! It goes straight from downtown Ojai up to Nordhoff ridge (cross your fingers for a clear day and be prepared to take pictures). If you're short on time, you can just turn around and come back the same way, but we like to take Nordhoff ridge over to Pratt Trail.
16 miles / 3700 ft
- This trail takes you straight up to the ridge; no messing around. If you're not prepared for a strenuous ride, we suggest you take an e-bike-- you'll have a blast!
- This area drains well, so this is your best bet to ride some dirt if it has rained recently
- If you want to further minimize your time on the pavement, you can also take Shelf Road to Gridley
