Need to Know

Best parking is at the River View trailhead, but the Old Baldwin road trailhead is almond as close.

Description

The trail starts at the junction of the Upper and Lower Loops trail near the River crossing. From the River the trail makes a short steep climb then crosses a service road. A half mile beyond that you'll come to a beach under an oak tree with great views of the Ojai Valley. The trail continues up the ridge and intersects with the Allen Jacob's Trail. Continuing up the trail you'll reach the high point in the Preserve before the trail descends to meet the upper end of the Wills Canyon Trail and the Chaparral Crest Trail.
