Rice - Wills Loop

We could spend hours and hours playing in the Ventura River Preserve, but it's also a great option if you don't have time for a big ride. The Rice - Wills Loop is our go-to ride, but don't be afraid to branch off and explore! 

12 miles / 626 ft     //     4.5 miles / 493 ft

These trails are on land belonging to the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy-- you'll find the most up-to-date maps and trail conditions through the OVLC.

Pro Tips

  • It's hard to get lost back here, so feel free to explore! Just follow signs to Oso Trailhead when you're ready to come back
  • The Allen Jacobs trail was built for mountain bikes, so it's a great option to extend this ride-- the best direction to ride it is North to South
  • OVLC often closes the trails west of the river after it rains-- check here under "Ventura River Preserve" to see if the trails are open
