Hiking Ojai's Trails

It wasn’t all that long ago that the very idea of a hike conjured up fits of hay fever and blisters.  But after a dose of Claritin and a careful application of Band-Aids, I got out there and have been trekking the trails of Ventura County’s backyard ever since.  The Ojai Valley is surrounded by the Los Padres National Forest, boasting miles of easily accessible trailheads.  So fold-up that treadmill (who wants to watch those flashing lights anyway?), head up the 33 and out into nature to get the blood pumping!
