Bike the Ventura Promenade

Added by Josiah Roe

Fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean, Ventura Pier, and Surfer's Point.

The Ventura Promenade is a .5 mile long biking and walking trail that runs from the Ventura Pier to Sufer's Point, eventually connecting to the Ventura River & Ojai Bike Trail. It is also part of the the larger "Omer Rains Trail" which runs some 3.5 miles to the south through Buenaventura State Beach.

The Ventura Promenade is a perfect way to experience the Ventura Coastline, with easy access to downtown, the eateries on and nearby the Pier, and also to enjoy a day on the beach and/or in Seaside Park.

To get there you can either begin at the Ventura Pier (easy parking) or from any of the parking lots along Shoreline Drive at Surfer's Point.
