Getting Here and Around
From northern Ventura, Highway 33 veers east from U.S. 101 and climbs inland to Ojai. From Santa Barbara, exit U.S. 101 at Highway 150 in Carpinteria, then travel east 20 miles on a twisting, two-lane road that is not recommended at night or during poor weather. You can also access Ojai by heading west from Interstate 5 on Highway 126. Exit at Santa Paula and follow Highway 150 north for 16 miles to Ojai. Gold Coast Transit provides service to Ojai from Ventura.
Ojai can be easily explored on foot; you can also hop on the Ojai Trolley ($1), which follows two routes around Ojai and neighboring Miramonte between 7:15 and 5:15 on weekdays, and one route between 9 and 5 on weekends. If you tell the driver you're a visitor, you'll get an informal guided tour.
